Emus love to get wet and muddy. We used to hose them off several times on a hot day. They even like to swim. At the last property we owned they had a pond to cool off in. Honestly, they love a good wallow in a mud puddle even more than a swim. Here they have neither access to the pond nor a mud puddle in summer. Yesterday Michael hooked them up! He put three tripod rainbird sprinklers in their pasture. Always the most curious of creatures, they were involved in the process a bit more than Michael would have liked. Of the four emus, Louis and Loca were more interested in the sprinklers and getting wet. Chica strutted and stood on the sidelines to get wet. Stuart hung out with me and fell asleep standing up.
Fainting goats Laverne and Shirley were not the least bit happy about any of it! You can see them at the end of the video.
