Now that Mother Nature has cranked the thermostat, exercise is not possible during normal business hours. In the evenings, the bugs are unbearable. So, early morning workout it is.
Work. Wait. Feed. Leave them to their hay. These two have adapted better than Previous Horse and Mathilda to pre-breakfast exercise. Flipping the order by feeding early, waiting an hour, then working would give them time for hay, but would intrude on the post-breakfast naps.
What is the summer schedule in your area?

Reminds me of when we used to ride Tory and Bentley in the early hours!
Many moons …
I’m on that early schedule now too. I should be á cheval by 8am to avoid the worst of the flies and the heat but it doesn’t always work out that way.
“á cheval” I like it. Sounds so much better than “haul my sorry a** out to the barn”.
