Max right at my feet

Max right at my feet


July 23, 2014

After a late night of tractor work, I am giving myself permission to take a break while the rain clouds pass by. I finished making the cow’s hay bales last night at almost 10:00 pm. The last few rows were getting tough but I wanted to beat the rain. Those last few bales will still be better hay than if it was rained on.

The bugs tried to eat me alive, but I managed to fight them off. I now have that peace of mind knowing the hay has been made for winter. My experimental field of oats and buckwheat will be ready to cut soon. Those bales will simply be a bonus for the hay stack!

I combined my speltz one evening last week. The field was small, but the combine worked beautifully. A little bit of straw has been mowed. The horses and I will work on getting that made this weekend. Straw makes very good bedding on cold winter nights 😮

Max is doing great. He is learning to be a stock dog, but also a companion. He is loyal. He is socializing well. One day soon he will be the farm’s greeter to our visitors. He sure is a handsome guy.

The winter hay, now all made, must still be brought from the field and stacked away, but what a relief to have it made. I am working a few extra shifts at work, dealing with our weather, but finding enough time to relax and stay satisfied…. I guess you could say that I am living life…. to the Max!
