The hay is in the barn.


Cliff baling hay

Well, our hay turned out to be of excellent quality, despite the extra time it had to lay in the field.  For those of you who never saw a hay-baler at work, if you have high-speed Internet, here's a movie of Cliff baling.

And this time, it was only me and Cliff doing the work; actually, mostly Cliff, because I simply drove the tractor.  It's a good thing he's been working out.

I "LOVED" the video.  I could almost smell it.  Can you describe that fresh cut green smell?  Or has it dried so that it has that dry smell?  Dry hay smells always remind me of tiny little kittens.  Guess why!

Yep...I know Cliff got another good workout...loading all those bales.  Now you've worked together and you are tired together.  Hoorah for "TOGETHER."

Yay! Hay!  I love the video.  Those bales just keep spitting out don't they ?  Somebody, maybe your horse will enjoy that this winter I'm sure.  Glad you got it in before more rain comes !  Pretty soon the quiet days of winter will be here and there won't be so much farm work to be done.  'On Ya' -ma

I am embarrassed to say that I never knew how hay was baled!  That was very interesting!  Thanks, Mosie!  You learn something new everyday!

Wow.  This takes me back.  I'm probably going to dream about walking next to the wagon hoisting bails onto it while praying I don't surprise a snake or nest of bees.  Zzzzzzzz
