The sheep and cows are grazing a field where the hay has been cut already. The regrowth is good, but a little rain would sure help. It seems us farmers are always fretting about the weather. It’s too wet or too dry, too hot or too cold, I guess we just need to enjoy the day no matter what and just relax. God knows what he is doing, we just have to be patient.

The sheep and cows make good use of the grass. They each eat different kinds, making the best use of the forage. They consume a lot of feeds between the two species. The pastures are holding up for now, so I will watch and wait. The nice thing is that I have these animals to watch as I wait.

Hot muggy weather is upon us this week. We may get a little rain from all the moisture in the air. The humid air makes the biting flies go crazy. The biting flies make the horses go crazy. No big deal for me, folks have said I’ve been crazy for years!

Rain in July is incomprehensible to me. It rained for one day in June and everybody here was going crazy! “The sky is falling”

We have been very dry here this year. I think a little rain might make us folks go crazy too 🙂
