Make Hay While The Sun Shines!

Isn't that how the saying goes?
Well, that is exactly what we did over this past weekend.

This was our second cutting this summer.
And now our coffers are full.
Becky's barn is full,
as is ours.

Hopefully this much hay will last until next summer's first cutting.

Our hay is green and soft and lush.
The horses are in heaven!

Oh my, my fat horses might get even fatter on this hay....
Fat and happy!

A friend with haying equipment helps us with this task.
He cuts and bales it,
then we pile it in the barns...
dusty, dirty, sweaty work!

(But well worth the effort.)

And so the cycle is complete....
We feed our animals our hay.
They make manure which we spread on our hay field to fertilize.
And our hay fields produce wonderful nutritious hay for our animals.
