It was only 96 at 0930 when I went out to do a light trimming this morning, but the heat index was 108. By 1230 when I finished spunging off their legs and face it was 100 with a heat index of 115. It was 99 30 min ago and the index is down to 112. And I can look forward to more of the same this week.
I think I might need to seek mental help for my 4 year old who, while I sweated through trimming the 5 year old, thought it was great weather for running through the pasture with her tail sticking up even though she already had a 3+ inch wide strip of sweat coming down the front of her hooves from just standing in the shade eating. When it's 35 degrees out they'll roll in the pond, but when it's to hot to think straight they won't even walk into the pond, but will run around like it's a brisk Winter day.
