Hay is Late

1 Jul

I’m always fine with my hay being made after the first of July because that gives the boblinks and meadowlarks time to raise their babies before we go out there cutting the grass.

Since they are both on the top of the tree keeping an eye on the babies, it won’t be long before they’ve fledged.

In the meantime, the goats will keep getting lost in pasture.

An adult goat–I think it’s Harley

It’s so tall out there the March kids get lost.  The herd gets separated.  It’s horrible getting around this time of year.

Can you see the kids?

The llady llamas don’t even want to go out there right now.  They stay in the barnyard and beg for llama feed and eat the short clover.

Some of the goats even prefer to stay in the barnyard.  Harley decided to stay up in the barnyard the other day.  After giving her sweet feed and hay, she did decide to join the rest of the herd when I went out to check on everyone.

I told you we’d find them, Harley.

My buffer strip usually gets made into hay well before the Back Forty, but not this year.

It’s been rainy, making it hard to do much of anything.

The butterflies are certainly happy with it.

It makes for a nice afternoon taking pictures too.  But that has all changed.

My nephew mowed the buffer strip and around the north shed on Sunday morning.

If the weather cooperates, it won’t be long before the Back Forty gets made into hay too.
