Spray down question

Ok, it is really hot here in Louisiana and I have gotten to where I spray rainbow down with the waterhose every evening. He seems to love it as he just stands there without a lead and loves to drink from the hose. I was just wondering if this is ok to do or not? He waits for me now so i hate to stop but if it's bad for him then I will.

I don't think it is bad at all. It gets so humid and hot here that everytime before I ride I have to hose my horse down and let her drie. She even has a fan in front of her stall and she sweats to death.

It is not just a horse,
It is the one thing that keeps me from being just a girl
