Hooray for Tuesdays, hooray for hay

Now that we have no pickup, we must figure out different ways of transporting stuff.  We can borrow a pickup from our grandson or our son-in-law if we must, but Cliff was pretty sure the old gray trailer would be adequate today.  We bought that thing from my parents, some thirty-eight years ago.

We can go a few miles in almost any direction and find a Subway, but this one is our favorite, and was in the same town as the farm store.  The staff is fast, efficient and friendly.  One perky little gal remembered today that we were the ones whose cold-cut combo sandwich got overloaded with mustard last week.  She and her helper made sure I got to see their new "Hooray for Tuesday" T-shirts, front and back.  Do you think she wanted me to take a picture?

We've done very well to get by over halfway through November without haying the horses; there's still quite a bit of grass out on the point, but it doesn't have as many nutrients as we'd like, this time of year.  We'd put off spending the $250 for a bale ring as long as possible, but the time had come.

I had no idea what a bale ring was.
The pictures were great.
I am glad you showed how that hay was put inside the ring.
Very interesting.

Always learning something  new when I come here! :)

The horses didn't waste anytime getting to that hay, did they? lol

Glad you two got the hay ring home and got it filled with hay. The horses do look appreciative. Helen

I never knew what a hay ring was until today!  Funny how they came running when it was ready LOL!  
Interesting that they have a "pecking order" in the herd. I never realized that.  Glad you got it all put together.

I bet the horses love the hay !  It looks like they had had no trouble adapting to the new feeder.  Glad you enjoyed your Tuesday!  'On Ya' - ma

Looks like Odessa to me. Am I right?

Hmmm, someone commenting knows Odessa?  Now I'm curious.  Anyway, glad you fed that skinny old nag that you ride every day.  He was wasting away to nothing....NOT!  I'd make fun of him some more, but if I see a good meal, it doesn't matter if I'm hungry or not....I'm eating!  Can't blame Blue for taking advantage!

Wonderful pictures!  One stipulation when we sell to family....we get to use the item (if convenient) when we want to!  I gave MY jet ski to my grandson with this rule in place.  So far I haven't had the energy to use it.
