Cooling Down - Finally!
Over 100 Degrees In The Shade!
Today things finally started to cool down at Wild Rose Farm. Yesterday temperatures were over 100 here. Yesterday we took a day trip to Maryland to visit family and temps hit 104 & 106 according to the truck during our afternoon drive home! Of course before we left, we made sure that the sheep & dogs had plenty of water, but you still worry even though they have access to shade. Funny that 88 degrees this afternoon seemed "cool". We have some lambs that have been sold, but we didn't want to move them for the last week. We had to avoid causing any heat stress & they'll go to a new farm this week.
