Muddy Buddies

Saturday August 3 2013

Oh dear, someone left the trough water pump on too long where the overflow from the trough runs into and fills up a pond (someone left it on a long time).

Batman first discovered the pond. His pawing and splashing immediately attracted Jose, who joined him in the pond, which quickly became a churned up super mud puddle.

Jose pawed and splashed with particularly intense concentration, making mud play an art form.

The pair pawed and churned and splashed, till Jose plopped down in it and had a roll.

Finneas and Bodie watched from the very edge of the pond, not wanting to get their feet wet. Batman had a roll in the mud pond too, emerging looking like a Loch Ness monster. 

After they followed that up with a good roll in the dirt, I was thankful I didn't have to clean them up to go for a ride!


  1. Jose is super smart. And incredibly handsome. Someone would leave the water on at our house when I lived down south and the only problem is we had our water shipped and sometimes someone would really forget for a very long time so we had no water for days until the water company could come back and fill up our tank. That would be our entire 2-3 weeks water in these photos.

  2. I've flooded pastures before, but never this badly! What a great photo opp :)

  3. Well, that's one way to cool off and have some fun! Great pictures as usual.

  4. Love it when they play in the water. It's often a mess, but so much fun!!!

  5. The others were really missing out!
