Another Hot Days Report

Check out this big boy!
He is in the next field to us along with his flys..ugh!
Can you see the lack of green grass?
He is being fed hay as there is no pasture left. 
Day after day of hot weather has taken care of anything green.
Along with Bully are 2 horses and a mini horse. Lots of room for them to survive without hay in a normal year..this is not a normal year!!


Another dry field. Never before have I seen it like this. Lucky fella is going on holidays for 2 weeks where they do have some green grass. 
My friend that rides him for me is on holidays so he s going to stay with her. 
Nice holiday!

So it is a great worry all this dry weather!!
If you live in the city it is just hot..but if you have farm animals or are a farmer this is dangerous. 
Think how much our groceries are going to cost this winter. Think how many farmers are going to be in financial trouble. 

Support local farming!!It is not an easy job. 
More Government funding should be there for them. 

Keep cool!!

Rain Dance Needed

Dry, Dry, Dry!!!

Every field is crispy.
The only green is the trees. 

All around us has gotten the odd light rain. We have watched the dark clouds wander off to other areas time and time again.

Days are spent looking after farm animals to make sure they are dealing with it ok. 

Lots of people are not as fussy as I am about there horses and that is on them to know what they can live with and sleep at night!.
I admit I do fuss but that is me and I am not 
going to change!!!


You can't see the fan but it is there full blast..Bill is one happy lad snoozing away!
When I arrived he was flaked right So I dropped his hay right in front of him..lazy you say..he just leaned over and nibbled. 
What a lad!!

Harry is GROWING!
Just one cuddly cute lad.

Same old routine here. To hot to do anything more than is necesary. 

Keep cool!

The Hot Days Of Summer

The hot days are here again!

Harry is priceless. Something new every day to make us smile.
Every pup and breed is a little different but a pup is a pup. Slowly we are seeing the little differences. 
He is a quick learner so far. 
My main problem is trying to put him down on the He is so soft and cuddly I just want to spend my time cuddling and playing with him. That is not getting a lot of work done around 
Speaking of hot days...well Harry and I are not happy about this intense heat! Ugh!!

This picture says it all. Our little friend came with his Dad to watch us put the hay in last weekend. It all proved just a little to boring and with the fan on him..he was out like a
How cute is this!!!

Harry and I are heading to see my Mom this morning while it is still cool. She just turned 91 so her days are made just a little more interesting when Harry comes to visit. 

 I am off to the barn to bring everyone in again today..gotta love fans!!

So try and keep cool where ever you are.

Enjoy the day!!
