    Thought I would share what I found at walmart this afternoon, to help keep the bunnies cool in the hot weather, It is a simple mister that attaches to your hose, it wat $10. My rabbits seemed to like it and it really did cool it down about 20 degrees. They are in the fan section.

    Is that the little hose mister that comes curled in a spiral about 5" long and stretches out to about 18 inches? I've bought 3 of them. None worked longer than a few days (yeah, it seems like Murphy lives here... LOL). Actually I think there are small amounts of shale that come up in the water and clogs them. For some reason the metal mist heads don't clog so I ended up buying the mist heads from ACE hardware. I got the connections to make it fit the end of a water hose. The whole setup cost me under 5 bucks, (that was last year, prices have been jumping in leaps and bounds since then.) I use several of them for plants and animals. My ducks love to set under the misters. Mist heads come in different sizes, I think they start at 1/2 gallon per hour and go up to 3 gallons per hour. I have several sizes that I use in different areas.
