    I'd love for it to be cooler! As it is, I'm stuck inside waiting for it to cool off enough to go play.

    Looking at conchos and rhinestones can be dangerous business for a Texas girl. O_o

    I bought Roux a little black halter. We worked with it yesterday for a little while. He's still unsure about this whole handling bit until he's had a few minutes to settle down with some yummy feed out of your hand.

    I have been very softly looping the cotton lead around his shoulder and encouraging him to walk forward with pressure. He's doing well with that. Got the halter on about halfway before he was no longer sure about it.

    He got his first bath and acted like he was dying. Haha He immediately dropped down into the sand and rolled as if it were hot lava on him. -giggle-

    Lol! Oh god, I know. All that cool water in this terrible heat. I bet it was excrutiating!!

    To be honest, I wanted to get under that water hose. Abby was enjoying it a good bit, but anytime the water hit Roux, he was back in the sand writhing. Lol

    That's like my puppy, Hank. We were at Agility class in Plantersville last night .. it was HOT and STILL .. so I kept trying to drag him under the sprinkler to cool off ... You'd have thought I was killing him .. LOL.

    Silly animals. And yet all the horses are way happy enough to go wading through the gross pond to cool off. Sigh.

    If I end up buying my land, I'm going to install one of those fountains in the middle of my pond and stock it with fish.

    I hear good things about the Grasslands. Lots of people go there. It's between Decatur and DFW area. Only about an hour from me. Everytime I attempt to go, something happens. Sometimes life gets in the way of my fun!

    Yes Texasgal it is called the LBJ grasslands and is named for the only REAL Texan to be elected President.
    A Democrat.
    It is hotter than a HO house on dollar day. 102 and climbing. Shalom
