When I was little I used to live with my uncle a lot, he had a cattle station in North Queensland. In the summer, it got really hot and the first two foot of water on the surface of the dams on his place would get hot, to get cold water you would have to reach right down to get the colder water underneath. When I was little the horse I rode mustering cattle the most was a huge old thoroughbred. I still remember being an amazed eight year old when we would stop at a dam to water the horses that that horse would walk right out into the dam then plunge his entire head under water to get at the cold water. Not even his ears would be sticking out. But that was in the middle of summer.
