Hay Day

3 Sep

We finally got around to unloading the three racks of hay into my barn on Monday, the last day before I went back to work.

It is really full.  We added about 375 bales to the 300 or so I already had left from last year.

I did make this gruesome discovery in the loft.  It’s pretty mummified.  I think it’s one Sky played with last summer because I remember smelling it not long after he kept me up all night playing with one.

By the way, working in there also made me realize the storm blew out that window at the top of the barn, so add that to my list of repairs I need done.

Anyhow, we had to throw out a couple of old icky bales, which the llady llamas promptly decided they should snack on them.

Odie and Aurora

Seriously?  Why?

Odie then did switch to the new stuff that fell off the racks and elevator.

Talk about lazy.  Just lying there eating and rolling in her food.

I also took some to Avril, which she seemed to like.  I do anything to encourage her to eat right now.

I also gave some to the birds.  They think it’s a nice treat, almost as good as veggies from the garden.

Nugget and the hens

Anyhow, I feel better now that the barn is full.
