Dinah the Appy Mule and Strider. Sunshine [in front] and Dinah [alongside] [Below the storm cell building at the same time as the herd 'chase'.]
The winds howled, the trees bent and did the hula dance.
The National Weather Service had our area under a Severe Thunderstorm Warning along with a Tornado Watch.
We did not get the rain.
We however did get the high winds.
Both times that huge storm cells built up near our home, the horses began to run and chase the mules.
A free-for-all ensued and mules and horses alike ran like the winds that were blowing.
When the front, or perhaps the storm cell passed, they returned to standing out of the wind or grazing contently.
The winds have not subsided.
The herd has moved down to shelter in the woods, in a 'pocket' where the winds are not so bad.
I did the evening chores as the light faded and watched the storm cell turn orange with lightening flickering across its strangely shaped 'mushroom' cloud top.
Someone else was getting it.
