Summer on the Farm

This week:DSCF6394It’s summer and there are hot days.  Days when it’s nice to spend a little time in the barn away from the heat of the sun, but also with some breezes blowing through.

Then again, sometimes the horses are done being in the barn and want out.

Belle taking a drink of water after fresh water was just added.  We put a cinder block in there in case squirrels fall in.  They have a place to jump off of so they don’t drown.

We hang buckets on the pasture fence of a loose salt/mineral mixture called Dr. Dan’s Red Cal.  Princess just got done eating some and has it all over her nose.

Hope you are all keeping cool.

About learningtolovehorses

Stumbling into the horse world about six years ago - what I've learned and continue to learn from horses could fill a blog. I live an hour and a half north of Chicago and my oldest daughter and I pasture- board five horses on a nearby farm.
