Beating the Heat

We took an old hose which already had one crack in it and added another slit so that there were two sprays the horses could play in. At the end of the hose was a regular sprinkler but we had that setting in pasture instead of the dry lot so the horses couldn't damage it and some of the pasture got watered while we had fun.

All I pay my psychiatrist is cost of feed and hay, and he'll listen to me any day!

They look like they thoroughly enjoyed that :). Your horses are cute, especially the grey.

Thanks everyone! Had them out again today too and they are really enjoying it in this heat and it gives a chance to moisten their hooves a bit.

Hunterjumper - that sounds like fun and a great way for both humans and horses to cool off.

The gray is my husband's horse Apache.
