The classic song "Baby it’s Cold Outside" provides no relief for the farmers and ranchers in these hot summer days. They say if you think about being cold, then you will not be as warm, but if you ask me, that’s a bunch of malarkey! I think about being cold, and I just get upset because I’m so stinkin’ hot!
Today it’s very warm outside, with the temperature 103, and the heat index at 106. When it gets to be this warm it is not only dangerous for the rider on the horse, it becomes very dangerous for the horse as well. Even if the horse isn’t being ridden, it’s important that they still stay cool, no matter if they are being penned up or turned out. A Kool Coat Sheet is a great way to help your horse stay cool and clean (it’s a great alternative for rolling around in the dirt). Not only will it keep the horse cooler, but also helps with fly control.
If you do ride your horse in warmer temperatures, it’s important to help the horse cool down after the intense ride. Ice Cells are the perfect fix! Keep them in the freezer and when the ride is over slip them right into the SMB II’s.
If all else fails, and you just can’t beat the heat, jump on in the pool or pond and let your trusty sidekick take a dip with ya! Rhonda
