The Winter’s Hay

31 Jul

My nephew came and mowed my field on Tuesday.  This is the second cutting off the waterways and buffer strip where there are no animals on it.

We really need to find a time to fertilize it because the goats, making hay off of it, and our drought has really been hard on it.

He didn’t even mow the back hill.

I’m not sure there will be as much as I’d like to have going into the winter, but I do still have a loft full from last year.

Thursday, his dad came out and got it into windrows.

He might have had to wait for the goats to cross the bottom before he could keep going.

Then he baled.

taking it to be put inside for the night

He finished up the last little bit with the round baler before it got dark.

There wasn’t enough to get me what I needed, so he’ll either mow that back hill, or I’ll have to find more hay somewhere else.

The llamas snuck out and were watching him.

I’m pretty tired of this drought.

    I know what you mean about the drought! We’re very tired of it too! And tired of the smoke from the wildfires too!

    I’m glad you got more hay! You are blessed to have that help.
