Then the rains came. It litterally rained everyday until Saturday, preventing me from riding. It has been so miserable here between the rain and heat. Now Ketel isn't sweating. I think it has to do with this weather. I am going to keep an eye on him and if he doesn't get better I will have to call the vet and see what she thinks.
Tomorrow is supposed to be 94 with high humidity. I hate that for the horses. I decided I am going to do bran mash in the morning for breakfast. Two years ago on our first hot as hell day of the summer Poppy stopped drinking water and got colicy. She was fine but I want to be proactive. Everyone will be inside under their fans but it still gets unbearable.
I am home for the next couple of weeks then off to show in NC. I am seeing everyone posting about showing in Atlanta this weekend and I am so jealous. I wish my trainer was going but then again showing once a month is about all I have the energy for. I don't know how I used to do it every weekend. Oh yea, I was muuuch younger and only had one horse!!
