Hay Crisis!

"Ahhemm...could I have everyone's attention?"

"Do I really have to tell them, Mom?"

"Ok, listen up, everyone....
it looks like we are going to have a critical hay shortage around here this year.
We are all going to have to do our part and eat just a little less hay.
It's time to tighten our belts a little bit."

"What about all that hay in the field?"

(Sadly, that hay has been hit by too much rain and is not salvageable.
Jim and I have worked Tin Lizzy like crazy,
trying to dry the no avail.)

"Less hay!!  We might all starve!"

"Now, don't worry, kids...
there will still be enough for all of us.
But we can't be wasting any of it...
and we could all stand to lose just a little weight!"

"Speak for yourself, Moonbeam!"

"If I get too hungry, I'll just take a bite out of Daphne!"


  1. Sorry about the hay thing.... but I sure did get a good chuckle from the equine conversation..... thanks.

  2. Such a shame. Seems hard to ever get the right weather to make hay. With the drought, I'm actually going to have to buy hay. Of course, I feel lucky to have a source close to home.

  3. Yes... sounds like horses across America will all be dieting this year. How sad....

  4. Sorry to hear this , its hard when mother nature doesn't work with you ! I do hope things get better , I know the animals there will be fine as they have the best mom & dad taking care of them ! Have a good day !

  5. Mother Nature can be cruel. We pay a fortune for hay with much of it being hauled from Oregon. Fortunately we aren't feeding too many, although Harry and Gunny always think they need more more more!

  6. Poor babies, they are already thinking about the weight loss, DIET, yikes! Hopefully someone will have some hay for sale but I'm sure it will be hard to find. Just tell them they get a little more grain, yum, yum! This sure bring back memories from my childhood - hay & weather! Have a great day, hugs!

  7. OMG..What a cute post..Sorry about the hay though.Yup..They could stand to lose a little...I hope it's not a cold winter :)

  8. Hay shortage is a problem but delightfully told!

  9. Tee hee. Cute post. But not so funny about the hay! What a bummer. Hope you have enough so there is no biting of one another!
