At the Barn

It was so hot when I got to the barn that I had decided to rinse all our horses down to make them feel cooler. They had been out in the pasture all night and inside with their fans on the hot days. I first filled everyone's water buckets with fresh cold water. Then gave them each a nice cooling rinse under the hose.
I let them stand in front of the aisle fans which felt good to them and me!
Then I put them back in their stalls and gave them some hay.
Satire says Hello!

Preacher is just interested in the hay.

Echo's mane is so long and thick that I braided it up so it would be cooler.
He has such a shiny beautiful coat!
A storm came through and we actually felt some relief for awhile but I don't think it's supposed to last for too long.
Stay cool everyone. Go out and run through the sprinkler!


  1. All three horses must be so grateful of a cool down Shirley. Oh, I just LOVE Satire, and he's looking so well now :o) Preacher is looking good too, and Echo's coat is positively glowing!
    I'll pass on the sprinkler though folr now, I'd never feel the benefit as it's raining heavily at the moment.
    Have a great weekend!

  2. I love hearing about your horses. You are a great horse mama.

  3. You have wonderful horses! Its so hot here too! Hope you get some releif soon! :) Echo looks like a mohawk ;)
