Wondering how everyone else is coping with the heat? Great post by Celi on her lovely farmy… Plus a great recipe to try too! Enjoy.

The high nineties is hot. Add the dry wind and it is very hot. All the animals have different coping mechanisms. The Matriarchs dog has decided that he would rather ride than walk. So he sits like a mini king in his chariot. And the Tall Teenager pedals him all over the county on their travels.
When she is not in the shade of the barn, Mama stands in Queenie’s shadow. As Queenie moves across the field grazing so does Mama. Keeping her head in Queenie’s shadow the whole time. Moving in tandem. The cow lopes along with lazy strides. The Sheep trots quickly to catch up. Hairy MacLairy does this with Daisy too. The cows are like great big trees to the sheep. Mobile shade. It is quite funny to watch.
