We are entering what I call, The First Day of Hell, four days where the temperatures will break all time heat records. Today, 106. Tomorrow, 111, then 108, 102, 100, 100, and down into the 90's.
When you think the 90's are a cooling off, you are, for lack of a better word, screwed.
Yesterday, was a mere 100. pfft. Child's play. But hot, nonetheless.
We did the cold showers. Here's Tumbleweed getting his cold bath.
Beautiful Girl and Lily came to me for theirs, and they just stood there loving it. They'd turn their bodies around to get different spots. Here mom, get my left butt cheek!
And I did. They all got a bath, and I sprayed Cowgirl & Epona in their actual stall after having poured cold buckets of water on both mama and baby.
I let Tumbleweed out of his stall to roll it off, and he went off bucking and running, he felt so good. I was like, Tumbleweed, dear, that defeats the purpose, now doesn't it?!?
When the temps finally cooled into the 80's, I let them out for the their night of grazing, and worked with Epona on leading. She is doing so well.
