summer scenes part 2

So what do you do when it’s too hot to even move, the air is stuffy and full of horse flies and nevertheless the pony needs to be entertained?
We opted for walking the ponies down to the creek to let them and us cool down a bit and play in the cold, fresh creek water.

After a few minutes hesitation the ponies decided this was definitely more fun than standing on the pasture in the heat, being pestered by flies.

Though eating, of course, is still more important and the foliage was just too tempting after the dry grass.

My boots came out a little worse for wear, but it was worth it.
