On Monday night of this week (8-29-2011) I let the horses out onto the back pasture and they were so excited because the horses next door were in the neighboring pasture so they could all hang out together. I could hear thunder in the distance and within minutes the sky turned dark but the sun was still shining on the clouds. I knew I had only a small window of time to take some photos before it started raining. I took these over a period of about 10 minutes and then it down poured. It was absolutely beautiful outside and we needed rain so badly. As you can imagine, I was thrilled when it rained. I think the horses enjoyed the rain because they refused to come into the barn when I called them. There was big bolts of lightning so I tried to get them to come in but they were not cooperating. It started to rain so hard it was like they got a "pressure washed" from Mother Nature. According to my dog Lexi, she will never understand those silly horses.
