Animals, Around the Homestead

One Hot Summer…

I have said it before and I’ll say it again.  We have had a hot, dry summer and everyone has felt it around our farm.

We have left the dogs inside for days on end because of triple digit weather and even they are getting tired of lounging inside in the a/c.




Even the llamas are feeling the stress of the heat.

Here Lexus is trying to tell us her pool is dry.  It is dry because she has nearly destroyed it laying it, but all she knows is it needs water…now.


We have lost a few chickens due to the heat as well.  They are free range, but for some reason don’t always leave the coop which gets really hot in the afternoon and evening.  Hopefully we have seen the last of this 2011 Summer for everyone’s sake.

Have a wonderful day!
