It's going to be a hot one today - heat index over 90F by this afternoon. So the horses who wear fly masks went out today without them. The geldings are in a very buggy pasture - it's low and also need mowing. The flies that are a problem right now are small white ones not much bigger than gnats. Noble had to do some head-rubbing and shaking off:
His tail was very active too:
Even more head shaking and rubbing:
Misty (buckskin) was showing off her dapples and rump frosting and Sugar (dark bay) has beautiful dapples too:
Maisie (left) and Dawn (right) were hanging out in the shade trying to stay away from the flies:
Maisie came up to say hello and gave me a sweet mare eye:
Due to the heat, I don't think I'll be doing much work with the horses today - perhaps a nice bath will be in order. Enjoy your 4th of July!
