Well the buck's pen is officially a muddy mess. It's been raining hard here in Tennessee, 1" plus every few days. I recently read a article about laying old carpet on top of the mud. Went to a local carpeting outfit and received all I wanted. Best part is that the old free carpet was cut in 6 foot wide x 12 feet long sections making it easy to carry and unroll. Works better than I could ever imagine!!!! Next he'll want a hot tub and feather pillow. Give carpeting a try, it's worked for me.
