Record cases of equine Botulism reported after recent floods in Tennessee

Please take a moment and educate yourself about the signs of equine Botulism. Though this disease is very rare, Tennessee is reporting record number of cases - most likely from the recent flooding.

Rowdy running in the rain....

There was a small lull in the rain on Saturday afternoon (before all the gravel was washed from the baby lot) and the babes wanted to get a run in the rain.... Enjoy!

Video of our place 12 hours after the rain quit....

12 hours after the rains, water was still barreling down the hill - though not nearly with the gusto it had over the weekend. These videos don't tell that story, but will give you an idea.....

Middle Tennessee hit with record rainfall!

It has been a tretchorous and unnerving weekend here in Middle Tennessee! Many roads are closed due to flooding - including several area's of interstates. The cities of Franklin (we are 10 minutes away) and Gallatin have been extremely hard hit due to their close proximites to rivers.

Below is a video of a portable building from an area school floating down I-24 in Nashville yesterday. 




We will have some clean-up here at PPH, but so far no damage that we can't easily overcome. Our driveway is trashed with ruts averaging 12-14" deep and about the same width all over. We also lost one tree beside the house. But so far, no other problems and all people and animals are doing fine.

The weather is not over it is still pouring.... below are a few flicks I took this morning
