If you have read my blog for a while,
then you will know that what I am about to tell you I say with great jubilation!
We have hay.
Hay that will be baled by the end of the day.
The end of worries about animal feed for winter.
I cannot tell you how difficult it has been these two past years to harvest any decent hay.
In a word....weather!
It seems that finding 4 straight days of sun, light wind, and low humidity
here in central PA in the summertime has been next to impossible.
And yet... it has happened!!
So, today we will be hauling bales of hay and filling the barn.
(really hard work...exhausting!)
I'll share pics of that on Monday.
And before I leave you for the weekend,
a Milford update.
It seems our little friend has fallen into a pretty good daily routine.
Up with the sun.
Visiting with the hens at the henhouse.
Back to the barn a couple times a day for meals.
Back to the hens until bedtime.
Bedtime in the barn... in a comfy cat bed, with head on pillow.
Poor spoiled rooster!
We should all have it so good.
Now that the fainting goats are in the big pasture,
Sammy has access to them for the first time.
For some reason he loves skulking around... sniffing their bowls.
The goats are wary and keep all of their eyes on him while he's in the pasture.
Little do they know that Sammy is completely harmless....
and a little freaked out by them!
Now, out I go to clean the honey extractor (centrifuge) and all of the equipment
we will need for tomorrow's honey harvest...
then later today... baling hay.
Have a wonderful weekend...
we'll be back on Monday with more Tails from the Farm.
