Pool Party!! Emu Style....:)


I think everyone has heard at least one Pacific Northwesterner complaining about our record temperatures....they have been pretty intense. It was 109 at the house here one day, and when you add all our humidity on top of that it makes it pretty uncomfortable. To show just how hot it was check this out:
Even the emus who typically don't seem to mind the warmer temps decided a little pool party was in order.


I think the following pics shows just how much a pool party can be enjoyed by a pair of emus.








Thankfully the temps have returned to the cooler side, though I'm sure the emus are hoping for another heat wave and are looking forward to the next pool party.

It looks like they had a blast! Who knew that emus would enjoy a pool party??? All the critters here are happy that the temps have returned to normal :)

I hope you offered them frosty beverages and fluffy white towels when they emerged.

awww that is so darling to see, thank you.

I can't tell the difference between sugar and Splenda, I'm sure you can find some who say they can. I use the white and brown and you can bake with it too.

That was quite entertaining. I guess everyone needed a cool down, huh?

Funny! I had no idea emus would go near the water! Love the pic of him floating in the pool like a duck. :-)

Awwww, so sweeeeet! In the first photo, I thought the emu was smiling and then after I read a bit, realized that he was doing what my chickens do when they have heat stress. So glad they got to take a swim. I wonder if my hens would appreciate that?

Christine said...

Oh I love emus!!! They crack me up. And emus having a pool party is about the funniest darn thing I've ever seen.

Michelle at Boulderneigh said...

Did you KNOW they would do this if you gave them access to the pool? I'd have no clue! What entertainment, though!

Did you get my email on the length of fiber needed for micron testing?

Christy said...

How cool! They look really happy. I should set up a pool for the sheep. The goats hate water, but the sheep love getting wet.

I dare say those are some happy looking emus. I had no idea they liked water! They're Australian, right? They have such beautiful eyes. Love those lashes!

Those pictures of the emus are fabulous! I can tell they had a wonderful time. I also loved the melted ice cream van. So glad your temperatures have returned to normal.
Blessings, Star

Now it's no secret that I'm no emu fan, but this is very amusing! Lucky emus!
