Back in 2010 I think is when it really flooded around here. We have two creeks around the house and the horse barn is right next to the back one. The back creek is just a wet weather creek, but during storms it fills up very quickly. The stallion's stall was filled with water that first night. I had to use a shop vac to get it all cleaned out. That was something that I wouldn't want to deal with again.
I remember when there was a break in the storm before it continued the next day the neighbor kids were playing in that back creek with their parents watching them. I was just thinking to myself, you couldn't pay me to play in that creek, because I know a portion of what's in there as it was downstream from the barn and it had seeped into 2 other stalls as well, but not to the extreme as the stallion's.
