i would put them in our barn if it was done but we just put a bunch of dirst for the base or the arena/stalls and it is 10 to 15 degrees warmer in there if i had stalls and the arena finnished (im hoping soon) they will be going in there during the day.. and we will be putting a fan up on them outside today or tomorrow.

We do the same, fans, water, etc, but the one thing we do, is, about 2 or 3 pm, during the heat of the day, we give them a slice of ice cold watermelon.

They love it.

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

You can lead a horse to shade but you can't make them stand there.

My horse is out 24/7 but is in a huge paddock with lots of shady trees but she refuses to stand under them. She would rather stand by the gate in 100+degree weather and blaring sun. She was drenched in sweat yesterday when I went to see her.

Oh well, she is drinking and doesn't seem to be feeling unwell. Guess she isn't bothered by it.
