The sun continues to shine from a blue sky with temperatures close to 30 C daily. But as much as I love sunny summer days, I do realize this is way off the charts. We have broken a heat record set in the 1900’s this year. I think we have had 10-30 mm rain since May 1st with no rain in sight for the next 10 days. Water reserves are getting low, the grass looks like it normally does in August after a warm and sunny summer. Will there be enough hay for the winter? We were running low in many areas already last year. While I worry about hay, water and climate change, having breakfast outside in the shade, Hälge is living a life close to his dreams. His pasture is green with more than he can eat. His through is filled with fresh water and the heat is easy to cope with as he lives close to the sea and every afternoon the seabreeze sets in. The only thing he wishes for is a horse friend to play and snuggle with. Unfortunately he is too ”fond of” mares and the only other gelding at the yard is 31 year old Biet who all horses, Hälge included, harass when in the same pasture. I guess it is the wild horse instinkt kicking in. Biet is a horse the herd would gladly sacrifice if attacked by a lion.
