Hot Hot Hot! Think about your animals!
Featured in the July 2009 handbook.
The middle of summer is here, and so is the heat. Please make sure your animals have sufficient shade and shelter when they are outside in the yard. Exercise should be done early in the morning or after it cools off in the evening. Water is a must!!! And no one likes to drink dirty, warm water and
neither do the animals. Even large animals like horses, llamas and others need a shady place to get out of the heat. The best way to think of this is: "Would I like to be in the condition in which I have my animal?" If the answer is no, then do something to change the way you take care of your animal.
