We gave to Dodger, Mama Tess’ misting fan after Dodger was overcome by heat a few weeks ago.
That’s what the vet said. He said that Dodger was old and ‘the heat got to him’. I still think Dodger ate too much of the California Pepper Tree and had indigestion. I did give him Say Whoa to Colic and he did get better…
But in any event, an old horse could use a new misting fan, no matter. I should have thought to give it to him earlier. My bad.
DODGER IS ADDICTED
Dodger is worse than Norma. At least Norma will change it up and go do something else during the day. But not Dodger. He has literally stood in front of this fan for 3 weeks.
In fact, he nickers at me if I don’t get it started by 9am. He doesn’t mind when I shut it off in the evening because the temps have cooled by then.
I think everyone should make a misting fan because clearly, it is a hit among hot horses.
HOW TO MAKE A MISTING FAN
The easiest way is to buy a fan and put a hose with a misting nozzle in front of it. Instant misting fan.
Or, you can make one like Hubby did for Mama Tess. Here is how.
I THINK MISTING FANS ARE A REAL HELPFUL TOOL FOR HOT, OLD HORSES!
I know that both Dodger (who is 36) and Norma (who is 25) are very, very happy with their fan.
