From our friends in NY.
We know some of the latest news stories are depressing, but there is still love. There is always love. Sharing some of the love Marjorie and her son, Gabriel have for each other.

You've probably all seen this by now, but just in case....
It is recommended to avoid riding a horse when the combined air temperature (in Fahrenheit) and relative humidity (%) surpass 150. For example, today's high temperature is expected to be 94 F with 65% RH; the combination of the two is 159. When the air temperature + relative humidity is less than 130, horses are very effective at cooling themselves. Between 130 and 150, a horse’s ability to cool themselves is decreased. When the combination is greater than 150, a horse’s ability to cool themselves is greatly reduced. If the combination is greater than 180, conditions could become fatal if the horse is stressed.
