Couldn't ride today - it was about 100 deg F. Went to visit my horse and the idiot RUNS AWAY FROM ME. So, he was supposed to get the day off, and ended up getting a groundwork session in the heat. Jerk. He only runs away from me when I skip a day of visiting him
Once he remembered who was boss, I gave him a nice cool hosedown, put lots of fly spray and Swat on him, cleaned his fly mask, put aloe on his nose, fed him applesauce with electrolytes and sent him on his way.
