The good news is that P and AP are weathering the summer quite well so far. It's been warm but not brutally hot. We've had some nice summer days, but unfortunately, there's also been a lot of humidity and bugs. The bugs are probably the worst part - sometimes I feel like I spend more time dressing them in fly gear and swatting bugs than doing anything else!
P is enjoying the summer grass, as it's softer for her to eat. I hope there will be a nice soft hay crop this year so she'll be able to eat well this winter, too. AP seems to have some allergies to the grass and pollen, but it's not serious and just something to keep an eye on. They don't spend a lot of time out in the pasture anyway because the bugs are so bad. That's probably a good thing, as it preserves the pasture and keeps them from getting too fat! They're both pretty easy keepers and have been a little chubby in years past - this year they both seem to be at an excellent weight, and I'd like to keep them there!
