Emus taking a bath

Yesterday, I set up a baby pool in the pasture and, after some coaxing and a little – uh – push, one of the emus got in and sat down and took a bath. She really seemed to enjoy her bath, flopping on one side or the other several times to get the water everywhere.

DEUTSCH: Emus im Planschbecken … den Emus ist es in letzter Zeit so heiß und die genießen es so wenn man sie mal mit dem Wasserschlauch abspritzt, daß ich den beiden jezt ein Planschbecken aufgestellt habe. Mit einem kleinen Schubser ging dann auch gleich einer der Vögel rein und die Abkühlung schien ihr dann auch richtig Spaß zu machen.

It has been pretty hot, lately and whenever the horses get hosed down, the emus come over and sometimes we spray them with water, too. They do seem to enjoy getting hosed down, and they sometimes sit down in the puddle and try to take a bath. So I got them the baby pool and I cut off the top half of the rim so they can step over it more easily.
