Hay There   Leave a comment

Actually, hay here . . . and there . . . and there . . . and over there . . .

We’ve got the last of our hay in, so we’re all set for the year.  There’s an awful lot of it; almost a thousand tons.  We park the stacks all over the ranch, so that if there should be a problem with one it can’t spread to the others.  So — we have a lot of haystacks.

Here’s some . . .

And yet more here . . . I’m still not sure I got every stack.

It’s all nice alfalfa, green and sweet-smelling, and golden where it was on the outside of its original stack.  It’s a real relief to have it all safely in.  Now we start saving for next year.  Hay brokers love us, because we pay in full and immediately.  It’s worth a year of saving, to have it all safely in and paid for.  The next big task will be to get it all covered against the winter rains.

At least, we’re hoping for winter rains!
