About 20 bales. I won't buy the same quality I do in the winter. Now, they just need something to chew on. They get all the nutrition they need from the grass and little bit of feed they get. Smile Thank goodness, it's affordable since the truck and trailer decided to eat up all the spare change. Laughing

Weather was pretty nice for high summer today. I was just getting ready to ride. Then, the skies opened. We need a little rain for the grass and gardens, but the timing wasn't great.

Far too hot today/tomorrow to ride. Heat indices in the 100s. Sunday is supposed to be nicer. Maybe I'll hop on for a little while. Tonight, the stalls are clean and hay nets are full. I'll fill water before I bring them in to stand under the fans tomorrow.

The humidity is surprisingly not too bad. It is muggy if you're from the west, but for here, it's a reasonable 67%. It is hot, but not too nasty. The horses are in under their fans because the flies do love a hot day. Poor Kina was run/limping around. I figured it wouldn't hurt anything to let them stand in comfort.

The weather this morning is beautiful. I was standing at the kitchen sink and looking at the horses in their "new" pasture. Kina was flat out in a sun puddle. Envoy was stand-sleeping over her. It was the sweetest picture to see first thing. Now, they're both awake and grazing in the shade.

Damned hot already, and I'm just prepping for my trip to get hay. I'm hoping to get home and get it stored before the PM thunderstorms. Looks like a day for a hose shower before going back inside to the AC/shower.

We had a short rain shower here, which means the humidity is back over the moon again.

It's thundering all around us, but not a drop of rain yet. We could use a little. It's already humid. Why not make it tropical? Razz

If it's that humid the least the weather could do is give you some rain! At least that would make the humidity worth bearing.

I'm trying to be careful of what I wish for. Too much rain would bring the dreaded mosquitoes. They're manageable now. If we go back to puddles with this warmth, we'll need to hide for a while since the biters will be out.

The horses are enjoying a slight cool down this weekend. It's only in the high 80s/low 90s. They're still coming in for the afternoons, but they get to stay on the grass later in the afternoon before the flies decide to make Envoy run around. We'll be back to the oven later in the week. It still beats freezing in the winter!
