Rain on the Backside

It will rain like this again, a spectacular downpour. But it probably won't be as warm. The horses aren't being bathed often since they don't sweat so much now that it's colder. Jeff's wearing sweat pants under his shorts, a hat and jacket. Junior wears a jacket. I have a jacket over my sweatshirt and turtleneck when I wash buckets. Horses wear blankets if they've been sponged off or come back from training.

There are only nineteen live racing days left until the meet ends and everyone goes somewhere. Like packing up the circus.

But this was a glorious day. And my camera recovered a few days after after I dropped it into my raincoat pocket that was full of water.
