It’s this time of the year again, 350 bales of hay plus straw coming on for the winter.We were smarter this year and ordered the majority of the hay to be delivered in cooler weather. It is not much fun as it is stacking hay and straw, but when it’s 100 degrees out and 90 percent humidity…you get the picture 😉 Oh, and we got even smarter that that! We bought a used hay elevator. There it is, being moved to the barn by out trusted Rover. I just love that car, it’s been through a lot and still going…reasonably strong.
Now all the barn critters are set for winter, makes us happy!
Splash and Fanny, Muscovy ducks. They were free to good home. I never had Muscovies and it was love at first sight! They have these little baby faces and cutest blue eyes. And they make funny crooning noises. Strangely enough our other ducks don’t like them much, so we have to keep the girls in their own pen. Better a little bored, but safe.
End of season variety. Barn people are going to enjoy the squash!
Molly likes squash. As a matter of fact, horses quite enjoyed it too 😉
That was a horrible experience… We decided to bring in a big roll away dumpster and clean out the garage and some other junk that really should have made it to the dump long time ago. So we thought we would take some moldy dry wall from garage ceiling…and we discovered garage attic space full of, for the lack of better word…crap. Old boards, bits of insulation, back seat of the truck, rear truck window, some window frames, rusty springs, a sign from Kennedy’s election campaign…yeah…lovely. The dumpster sure got filled! Sadly no cool antique things, just trash. Above it the view of the almost cleaned out attic, just some boards left. I wonder, no I suppose, I don’t really want to know…WHY and HOW they pushed this crap up there…
And to finish the post with the picture of my girl, Secret looking out into the sun.
We are most fortunate to be able to lead this kind of life!
