OK,more heat stuff -- cooler today but due to soar again next week. So we have emptied the pool twice. Then in for a while (she didn't want to leave it) then back out laying in the damp earth from the pool (she digs the water out).
A few days ago I let her out when I had the pulse sprinkler on. I should have video-taped it! But I don't want her going full tilt even in water in this heat.

It's too hot to take her on trail rides with a newer horse. (With my old mare she'd have done fine because we could have gone for a very short ride. - Mr. new guy needs more than that or he'll get sour.)

Yeh i agree with Tarheel.. i have a big container of ice in his bowl for sax... and also he has fun trying to catch the water with the hose! when i wash the car, it cools him down ... i also brush him every day against the grain as it helps with the undercoat.. walks early morn and late arvo after sundown... its a nice cool day today in rutherford nsw... rainy and 16.5 deg C and he is inside lol

I got a kiddie pool to place under our tree for those hot summer days that DH and I would be gone all day. I used to take her on walks in the mornings but that was before my work hours changed and I wouldd have to walk the dog in the dark (not a good idea for a pregnant woman!)so I'm not walking her in the mornings anymore. I am going to hit the park in the evenings when it's cooler and on super-hot days that the dog needs a good long walk, I just drive a bit further to hit the wooded trails so Abbey can stay cool.

If we're going to be gone for several hours or less, we'd just leave her inside where it's cool.
