106-degree heat index

So -- it's hot, right? Does that mean us farm-types get to sip iced tea in the shade? I don't think so.

This dangerous heat means we still have to deal with our farm chores, and believe you me -- it's not fun.

Today my summer helpers and I spent lots of time hosing off the animals. They loved standing under the sprinkler spray and getting soaked. Becca and Jayden took turns and the water was flying.

We still had to clean out the barn. We still caught and haltered animals going to shows this summer. We dealt with a cria that is newly born -- and one who recently lost his mama.
Today is supposed to be even worse. Yuck!
Fall can't come soon enough for me.
