Trying to Stay Cool

20 Jul

We are ridiculously hot again.  Everyone just lounges around.  The goats are heading out to pasture fairly early in the morning.  They hang out under the trees during the hottest part of the day. It’s too hot for me to go out there, so all my pictures are from the barnyard.

Maybeline just hangs out luring Tony over so she can spit on him because she might be pregnant. Who knows?

On Wednesday, we had a line of storms pass through that brought everyone back up to the barnyard.

At least it cooled us down a bit before the ridiculous heat returned.

I am spending my time making sure everyone has plenty of clean water and that they aren’t getting overheated.

One evening, I did have to hose Aurora down to cool her off.

I’ve been worried about Tony, too, but he’s hanging in there. I’ve added a fan in the buck room to help keep the air moving.

The goats are doing okay.  We’re all ready for a break.

We are now looking at the end of this long stretch of hot weather.  Next week looks to be back to more reasonable temperatures.  Thankfully.

    I really enjoy your photos. Your critters are beautiful, too. Maybeline is surely a sassy girl!

    We’ve had a couple of really uncomfortably hot days here as well, with extremely high humidity. It’s been in the low 80s, which is very hot for here, and the humidity hovering about 90%, so it feels like a sauna when you go outside. There have been heat warnings for the past 2 days, but finally with a rainstorm that just came through, I think that pattern has broken.

      Glad to hear you’ve gotten some relief.
