Drizzle here, but the ground is holding up well.
Mind you we have been lucky compared to most with the wet weather :hug:

Gavin welcome to the world of pigs. You tend to judge your day by how deep the mud is. :roflanim:

I nearly pulled my temporary Paxton feeders out the paddocks earlier this week.  The ground was drying nicely and there was even a flat trodden down area that I could easily throw the food onto. Perfect.
I ran out of time so left them there.
We had some rain last night and I can only imagine what it is going to be like today.  the feeders will be back in use for sure!

It's rained for two days here now and up until last night the ground was doing well. It's starting to get mushy now though and another day of rain will have us back to square one. Glimmer of hope that it's going to go back to cold and dry after the weekend though.
