I’m Melting…I’m Melting… I’m Melting…..


Day 5 of hell…

If you live anywhere in the US, you’re probably going through the same thing.  How many of you are sick of seeing THIS in your car???

I’m not sure how much more I can take, really.  This is killing me.  And the poor, poor, miserable horses… still working hard and doing miles and miles of driving in this heat.  They’re slaving away until they drop….

umm… yea.  If you didn’t pick up on it, that was all sarcasm.  I haven’t worked anyone since last week, nor do I see any end in sight to this heat, and thus, no working the horses.  I do hate missing their work days.  I like keeping them on a 3 day a week schedule.  It keeps Luke fit, and if I can manage to work Dixie 2 days a week, it helps keep her trim, and with Chewbacca just finally having 3 days worth of real actual driving, I’d like to continue training him along.  He could  have been up to 6 drives by the end of this week, but we are all just miserable.

I’ve been hosing the horses down, and supplying them with extra salt blocks (2 kinds), and also giving well watered bran mashes.  I hope you are taking measures to help your horses out in this heat, too.

In the mean time, my ultra-cool Andriod phone has gone the way of the dodo. The smart phone was too smart for me, and by “too smart”, I mean “too expensive”.  Extra data plans, usage charges, and protection plans.  Suddenly, our phone bill jumped up $70/mo.  NO way!  Hubby and I both returned our phones and are back to our old “dumb” phones.  Which I am very happy with mine, FYI.

Well, that’s all from me…. time to go hose some horses. And myself while I’m at it.
