On Monday, July 9th, we made sure everything was in order for our heatwave.
On Tuesday, July 10th, we had decided to let the horses that were in minimal shade shelter pens out during the heat of the day by separating the mares and the geldings/stallions. We closed off the front from the mid-yard. The mares hung out under the shade trees in the front and the geldings and stallions hung out under the shade trees in the mid-yard.
We did the same thing on Wednesday, but the older stallion decided he was going to torment all the geldings by chasing them around the yard and so he had to go back to his pen early and use his lean-to instead of standing under the trees.
