    We've been going through a heat wave here in this part of Alberta as well,ugh. Usually we get the dry heat,with lots of wind,but it's been very humid and calm. Poor mares just stand in the shade and sweat. Riding's out of the question,even by the time I get morning chores done I'm completely over heated. I can't imagine how hot it must be down at the Calgary Stampede,with all that cement and all those people and animals,whew!

    Well, I call what we have currently "mean weather". Its seems so wonderful, lower temps, but the humidity increase takes away the pleasure. Ugh. When ya work in it - you overheat. I went out to trim my little girl's hooves...shwew! I got hotter than a firecracker at 88F...which would be "cool" and pleasant for this time of year - w/o the humidity. I want to talk to management!

    Thanks!
    Haha,I will admit,we're generally known for temperatures that are at the other end of the thermometer, but lately we've been 90+ F,plus the humidity factor of another 10 degrees and more. So for us,especially since the last few summers have been on the cooler side,it's pretty warm,for people and animals alike. We even have been without power a time or two because we're overloading the system running anything and everything to cool off. I know,we're a bunch of babies,lol,but when your bodies aren't used to it,whew..Probably not such a big deal for some of you,but,well,let's just say anyone who sells ice,fans,and air conditioners is doing a booming business around here.

    Well, 90+ and humidity - that's to much for me, too. I guess it works both ways, I can't handle the cold....anything below 40 makes me think its best not to risk going outside.

    Yup,it does work both ways;we think 40 is nothing,heck,that's just a nice comfortable t-shirt day,lol,and if we had that during winter time,people would be running around in shorts because it's so "warm",haha. We certainly do get acclimatized.
