Cooling

This week’s short but intense heat wave culminated today with records broken all around the Washington, D.C. metro area. When I arrived at the barn, the thermometer in the Tahoe read 95 degrees, and it wasn’t yet noon. It felt much warmer, too, once you were around the horses and inside the stalls. Horses tolerate extreme cold better than heat, but they’re really quite adaptable to any temperatures. So in the late afternoon, after the horses were worked and the chores finished, the horses looked much better than their human counterparts. I think both parties found the day’s highlight was a rewarding bath after the workout, and on this scorching day the humans enjoyed getting as wet as the horses.
