It took a while but it finally feels like Spring is here!!!  The aussies were so happy when there was finally no ice in the pond, they took full advantage right away.  They definitely enjoy their daily swims...rain or shine!  

They have also been loving all of the rain that we have been getting...rain=lots of big mud puddles and they especially love the swampy area next to our field when there has been lots of rain.  They have the whole field to run and play on but what do they choose to in the swamp!  There never seems to be a shortage of mud around here but they are very happy and love every minute of it, except for the part when we have to give them a bath!  They seem to be willing to pay that price, though, for their fun time in the water.
