it is extremely hot and humid in the midwest as it is in the east I went out to work sonny anyways and get the **** flies off him. It iis over 100 degrees with humidity factor.
Even his eyes were sweating! We have a show in a month and need to be working!!!!!! But I felt so bad for huge boy-he got a sponge bath a spray down with fly spray, his very heavy mane braided up off his neck and a carrot. I did halter work for 10 minutes and put him to bed-i feel guilty we are not working as hard as we should be but he is just so big and I worry about heat prostration .hopefully I am putting his needs before my own- am I being a goober?????
I let mine get dirty when it's that hot... like right now. I hose them and they role and I leave the dirt on them because it helps with the flies... they look yucky but... it's not like I'm riding them in this horrific heat!
