Even though you can see the storms rolling in, you have no idea how excited this picture makes me. A mare I'm a fan of in a friend's barn. Awesome!

It’s a rainy, wet weekend in California. We have been getting hammered by storms since Thursday night. I suspect that I will be stuck indoors all weekend. If you’re looking for something to watch on YouTube, check out Elisa Wallace’s video blog series from Red Hills; episode one is here and episode two is here. That’s what I’ll be doing this weekend. Oh, and waiting for the rain to stop. Please send a boat.
