Keeping farm animals cool in weather like this (100 degrees +) is difficult. My Jersey cow, Cinnamon, looks for shade, manure piles, the best breeze. The past week has been brutal on her. This morning, while watering my garden, I noticed Cinnamon hanging around the sprinkler. I got close to it and realized that the cool mist, along with a gentle breeze, was refreshing her senses! So, when my garden was nice and watered, I moved the sprinkler over by her favorite shady spot and turned it on! She hesitated for a second, and then just stood there, basking in the coolness of the experience.
Niko, on the other hand, is having no trouble staying cool. He's in the house, every day, napping away in the 75 degree A/C. What a life!
Take care of yourselves during this hot time of year. Think snow! Then, slap yourself really fast!
