Friday’s Hunt v4.8

25 Aug

Welcome back to Friday’s Hunt. I want to thank everyone who joined in last week. I had a lot of fun visiting everyone who linked up. It’s very simple. Anyone can participate. The link opens at 7pm Central time and will close Sunday at 7pm, so you have plenty of time to enter. Hopefully, you’ll be inspired to visit some of the other entries.

We are working on round four! It’s hard to believe. I did make a slight change. It will still go through the alphabet for the first prompt, but there are two other prompts that will change each week. As always, you can choose to do one or all. If you enjoy the week’s favorite, by all means continue to add that. If you didn’t participate this week but would like to next week the topics will be: Starts with I, bowl, and desire. I will always keep a list of the items for the coming week in my sidebar at the top. I am crazy busy with work off the farm and everything on the farm right now, but I will make sure to visit all participants. Without further ado, here’s my interpretations for the week.

Starts with H: Snickers didn’t show up for his egg the other morning after it rained, so I went looking for him.  I found him high up in the rafters of the barn hiding in the hay.

Snickers

Simple:  Just a simple daylily from my ditch.

Green:  Clover is feeling better, and since I sold her kids, I have her back with the herd.  To finish getting her strength back, she needs to eat a lot of green stuff.

Now it’s your turn!

Friday’s Hunt v4.4

As always, you can choose to do one or all. If you enjoy the week’s favorite, by all means continue to add that. If you didn’t participate this week but would like to next week the topics will be: Starts with E, drop(s), and happy. I will always keep a list of the items for the coming week in my sidebar at the top. I am crazy busy with working on the farm right now, but I will make sure to visit all participants. Without further ado, here’s my interpretations for the week.

Starts with D:  Oh dear!  What shall I do for this letter?  My darling little doeling, Caroline!  She’s doing much better with her stifle injury.  You don’t hardly notice it anymore.  She’s going back out to pasture, and I think she’ll be fully recovered soon (as long as she doesn’t get wild again).

Favorite:  I had a former student come to the farm a couple weeks ago to do a photo shoot.  Here are a couple of my favorites from the day.

Photographer’s Choice:  Nothing like raking hay with llamas.

Hay Is In the Barn

26 Jul

Yesterday we had pretty good weather for baling the hay my nephew had cut on the bottom.

It was beautiful hay.  The weather wasn’t horribly hot.  It stayed dry.  I couldn’t have asked for anything better.

After we got the small bales we needed, my nephew brought the round baler and finished the rest of it that way.  The llamas were more than happy to be quality control testers.  Maybeline thought she’d just keep sampling and let Farina and Odie have the spitting fit over the bite of hay they both had claimed.

The goats were more interested in just eating like usual.  They like their green stuff.

This morning, we got the hay all unloaded into the barn before our forecasted rain got here.  Well, so far, we’ve had sprinkles.  I really want it to rain.  That would help my pasture stay green.  That would be a good thing.

I hope you’ll come back to join me for Friday’s Hunt.  I have this week’s items at the top of my side bar.
