Back to Haying!
Good weather has returned...sun, wind, and warmer temps have returned and that means back to haying on the ranch.
Jason (our son) is out in the front meadow baling oat hay for feed for the cattle. This is the first day that the weather has cooperated to be able to get back to haying/harvesting.
The old baler is put back together by Jason and Marvin each and every day. That is the frustration of haying. Fixing the equipment especially when it gets old and well used.
The prices for new equipment astound me. Even for used equipment!
I have certainly enjoyed this day (09-25-10) once the sun came out! Mild weather with a wind -- which helps to dry out the wet swathed hay. I hope this weather continues for months to come.
Have a great weekend everyone!
