It was already freezing at home then to come to the heat and humidity was a shock for them. They stood still and sweat poured off of them.

We were ALL miserable last summer! I bought my colt at 5 months in July and was so very worried about him in the heat.
I am a native Texan and what I like about north Texas is our long fall and spring seasons and mild winters. Hate how it can go from 75 degrees to 30 overnight, especially with rain (as in 2 weeks ago!).
Back to the topic,
Joe4D I like what you say about the blood chemistry of lytes... need to read up on this!
