Tomorrow, I will have new pictures of Mira!!! So stay tuned!

The weather here has finally cooled off a little, going from 115 degrees in the afternoons to "only" about 100 degrees the last 2 days - Phew! Sheesh. I was worried about Mira during the heat wave, but she didn't seem to mind much. I guess it helps that she has white fur? Anyway, it was funny - she would stand around in the sun, chewing on her hay that is in the sun rather than the hay in the shade, and drink out of her bucket in the sun rather than the bucket in the shade. Our dogs do the same thing - they lie out in the sun in the middle of the afternoon! :-s I kept hosing Mira off, which she liked, but she never acted like the heat was getting to her. That was a big relief!

I, however, DO mind oven-like temperatures, so I am hoping that we don't get that hot again this summer.

It's hot here too. My horses are making it clear they'd like to be in and out of the heat. We watch them when they are out to make sure that they get to come in when they are ready. I'll be glad when it cools down.

We are supposed to get to 100 today---just dreading it and hiding inside for as long as I can.

Yep, it's hot here too. Yet, we hosed down one of our horses, to give her a little cool down and all she wanted to do was get out of the water. She didn't appreciate our efforts at all! In the process of trying to cool her off we got wet, and thought it felt wonderful! I guess she wasn't as hot as we were.
