Enough Already!

Record high today here in Enumclaw.

103°F outside
89°F inside (and not done rising yet)

Even Chester was panting...inside the house. Hazel went out this morning and is hiding someplace cool, probably under the front porch.

The horses are doing quite well, considering.

The garden has had sprinklers running for 2 days straight as we don’t want to lose any of our crops in this record heat wave.

I noticed the goaties are panting a little, but seem happy enough.

Even the chickens are hiding, and panting, today.

We won’t get any real relief for a few more days.

We have 3 border collies visiting for the next week. Buster is in heaven. Thankfully they like taking breaks in Little Cowboy’s wading pool.

We did lose a small brood of barn swallows in the barn. It was just too hot. The family nesting on the back of the house fared much better as they were a few weeks older and able to fly away from the heat during the day.

Time for another late afternoon shower...

Introductions: KT, Meet Buena

After a short week of hanging out separated, I decided it was time to turn Buena out with KT, seeing as we have a short trailer ride to our trimming appointment tomorrow. It was practically uneventful! Just the way I like it.

Now...introducing my friend’s Araloosa mare...that will be a different story. But for tomorrow, I’ll sandwich Buena between them and all will be good.

Anyone a Lip Tattoo-Reading Expert?

Sorry for the picture quality. I am going to tray and get a few more and also try a black light when she gets dental work done in a week or so.

New Addition

Meet KT. She’s an 18 year old gray Arabian mare with a lip tattoo, which means she was raced at some point. I am hoping to be able to decifer the tattoo and get her full identity. She’s packed around 4-H kids in her recent past and hopefully will make a good mount for Paddock Boy and/or Little Cowboy.
