Too damn hot to trot !!!!!!!

Wow it's been hot here in Essex today around 30c and the hottest day of the year. As usual it's gone from one extreme to another ! Should'nt complain about the heat really but our two have been wanting to come in for a break this afternoon but it was just far too hot in their stables, poor Tenor had managed to get his fly mask off ( he normally does this when having a roll ) so his whole head was a mass of flies I sloshed them both down with cool water and changed them into a paddock with a little more shade. No riding for us today !! How about everyone else, how do you keep your neddies cool and do you have plenty of shade ?

Well we have had an outbreak of EIA ten minutes down the road, two horses dead, three confirmed to be pts and another 100 in quarentine so all ours are staying in right now!!!

However Dubai is at the clinic after his gelding, so I rode my dad's mare in my lesson at 4. We beat your temps though :P We had from 37-41oC and its hotter tomorrow.. she sure did enjoy the hose off afterwards!

Hot and humid here as well, I think it got up to about 24 or 25, not that hot comparing it to Germany, Duffy, but plenty hot enough for me !!

Hope Dubai is ok after his gelding, when will he be coming home, or is there a ban on travel between yards or something with an infectious disease about? I hope the EIA will be contained anyway, and no more horses suffer.
