Really it is the same as sacking out for anything else. When they are really hot, (caveat: this is if they aren't suicidal spooked) I just put them in the roundpen and keep the hose going. Soon they settle down and begin to enjoy it. Moose tries to drink it now, just gets his lips full then spits it out.. lol it's a game. The fillies tolerate it, not sure about Nate and Ace, but my guess is they are ok. As for the warm water ideas.. you are dedicated owners, but I aint haulin buckes of warm water to a horse I'm trying to cool off anyway. I use warm water for wound care or for spot scrubbing really muddy spots.
