It's beginning to feel like we ought to get water wings for the big boy. Because of the black soil here he has to stay inside during and sometimes even a day or so after the rain. I took him for a little walk the other day as he had been cooped up in his stall. Took him to the far side of the house where I thought he could at least munch a little grass. RUT ROOOO! Even tho it didn't appear to be the ground was soaked. He sank in like a rock in water. As I was pulling him to drier ground I swear I heard sea gulls overhead.. That's just not right... You should see the craters he left in the lawn. Thought I'd show you a photo I came across. This was taken a couple of years ago, he was still growing then. The blacksmith thought it was easier going under him to get tools than walking around him. The horse standing behind him is almost 16 hands tall and weighs about 1300 lbs. She is a big horse and he makes her look like a midget.
