At the Barn #47 - Beating the heat

Excessive temps got you down?

This is how we roll...


A cool rinse...

drinks from the hose...

so refreshing!

And then there's that summertime favorite -


Nom, nom, nommity nom!!

Of course some of us just soak up the air conditioning all day...

Great pictures! Val looks very cool and happy enjoying his watermelon. All in all I think I'd rather be in the air conditioning.

Ha! We got lucky the past three days and had late afternoon rainfall that seriously cut the heat. Today it's overcast from the get-go so I hope it keeps the heat down somewhat for us.

Stay cool! The worst part for me is transitioning from barn to house. Walking into the AC while dripping with sweat and usually wet from the hose is the worst, yuckiest feeling.

Hahahaha! Love the watermelon eating.

The cat looks quite perturbed, how dare you disturb HRH's naptime? Insolent human! You shall be punished.

Let's hope this heat wave breaks soon!

billie-

I'm jealous of your rain, but it looks like we going to get some this evening.

Jeni-

Val digs watermelon - he's very enthusiastic about eating it :)

Shannon-

HRH lives in crazy town more often than not, bless her heart ;)

Cute photos! Looks like you are making lemonade with lemons.

My horses like watermelon, too--more than they like carrots! I get a real kick out of hosing mine off--they pirouette around at top speed to make sure the water gets all over them, and then they go encrust themselves with sand. Better than flyspray!

You guys sure do know how to cool down! Loved the pics. I am picking up watermelon tonight!!

Great pictures! Val is so good about the hose. Rogo won't let it near him :( Your dogs and cat are adorable too. Hope it cools off for you soon.

I love the pictures!! What type of camera do you use? Note to self - buy some watermelon for my horses.

This post makes me so happy. I can identify with each and every creature! All of ours are doing the same thing, except we aren't so hot here anymore, and we don't have air conditioning! That watermelon series is the BEST! This is positively JOYFUL!

HAHAHAHA!! Oh Val, you are even talented with the water versions of summer! Love that you like the mellons too...

Too great, this post was C! made me totally smile...
we here in the Western state of Oregon have had the inversion effect of all you hotter states..60-75 only with scattered every other day cloudyness. I am so okay with that...enjoying the heat of your area-from here!

Val likes watermelon! I have not seen a horse eat melon before. He is so cute, as are your AC worshipers.

juliette said...

Love the photos! That Val, looking like a little grey puppy colt gobbling his watermelon...nom, nom, nommity nom!

Those air-conditioned friends are lucky! Stay cool.

It is so cute that your horse eats watermelons! My mom's dog love blueberries!
