It’s hot. And it seems to be getting hotter each day. We had to sort cows yesterday and didn’t want to subject the cattle or horses (or me and the kids!) to the hottest part of the day, so we caught horses before the sun was up.


We were done before noon. The cattle wandered to the creek, the kids ran for the kitchen (“Breakfast was hours ago Mom!”). The horses were content to line out and walk out to their pasture, tails a-swishing.
