[RC] Who says it's humid! - rides2far

When I moved to South Eastern Colorado in the early 90's I thought 
it was 
quite humid. 

I found the heat index chart at   http://www.crh.noaa.gov/pub/heat.php  

It's 85 and 61% humidity here right now at 10 PM. and I'm a couple of
hours north of Jody. When you drive down my road at night you have to put
your windshield wipers on intermittent. The humidity builds up on your

It was 97 today. If the humidity was even 50% that would put us at about
110 index According to this website that is calculated for shade and a
light breeze. Direct sunlight can raise it another 15 degrees. All I want
to eat is tomato sandwiches and  watermelon for dessert. Jello is OK, ice
cream seems too thick. 

Checked Gunner when I fed. He feels slick, as if he hasn't even sweated.
Looks totally unconcerned. Good day to have 3 white horses. We rode 5
hrs. Saturday mostly walking with some big hills. The non-endurance
horses in the group were panting like crazy but our guys really didn't
seem affected at all.

Funny someone mentioned cats. Our cats look hotter than the horses or
dogs. I've heard you can tell the temperature by the length of a cat.
Mine are getting very elongated.
