We've had a bit of a break in the heat. It "only" got up to 96 this afternoon but the biggest change was the drop in humidity...down to 35% or so. Still, though... hot.
I went into the garage and grabbed one of these from the freezer:
Then I wiggled my foot into sandals. (Don't tell the doctor. He said absolutely no flip flops. Emphatically. More than once. Oops).
I picked up the pieces that were flung all over the barn aisle and took them down to Jackson who was looking quite famished.
He sniffed at my hand suspiciously and clamped his lips shut. No thank you ma'am. Good & Plenty was what I was hoping for.
I knew Flash would eat it. He's not a picky eater, especially when it comes to treats.
The horses were all swatting at the flies with their tails so I got the fly spray and squirted them all. I also retrieved Winston's jolly ball which had somehow ended up in Flash's stall. Boys?
It was still hot in the barn, so I carefully hosed down the brick aisle-way. The temperature immediately dropped.
Last, I grabbed carrots from the feed room refrigerator. Everybody got a carrot. Even the bunnies.
I gave Jackson one last kiss goodbye and headed back to the house. Jackson's weight is just about perfect now. And he looks so darn handsome with his "come hither and kiss me" face. Who could resist?
