For over an hour at feeding time, starting as John went over to Burroland to encourage the brats to come over here for supper.  He said he found them, & when he aimed for Cisco with a halter & lead, Cisco took off running & when he ran thru the middle of the herd they all took off.  John said it was amazing considering their usual speed is pretty much below "slow".  Of course they didn't waste all that energy on coming over here, they just scattered all over Burroland.  About that time it really started to rain, so we decided to feed what we had & to heck with the rest.  

Fed 12, which actually wasn't too bad.  Of course it didn't take long for the wash to start running & about that time John saw 2 trying to figure out how to get over here across the wash without getting their feet wet.  I told them they should have started sooner.  

I told John if they do show up tonight when he goes out to let the "well behaved" ones out of their pens, he can spread a line of hay down between the pens, & they can have a picnic.  Of course if the wash doesn't go down, it won't be a problem.  

Won't know how much rain we actually got until John checks the rain gauge in the morning.  Feels like a couple of inches to me, but we'll see.
