Always, always, always bring your muck boots to the barn, even if it isn't your day.
I hadn't even gotten out of my car at the barn this morning when I got a call from the morning cleaner. She had car trouble and wondered if I could fill in for her.
A couple important points:
1) She fills in for me all the time, so I owe her big time.
2) She's one of those really nice people I'd do almost anything to help.
3) It rained hard, all night long.
4) My muck boots are at home.
I even looked at my muck boots as I was loading up the car, and thought, "Oh, I'm not cleaning today. There's no way I'll need those."
HA! Apparently, I now needed them badly.
We managed to get it figured out, though. I borrowed Cathy's boots, since she was gone for the morning. They're too big, but they're waterproof. I hope the other cleaner's car gets fixed today so I'm not on the hook for tomorrow, but either way, I'm bringing riding and mucking boots with me from now until the ground dries up.
