Buckin' hay and long summer days!
It's been beautiful and we are thankful as we've been getting up and getting after it around here the last few weeks between getting our place cleaned up and bringing in our first crop of hay!! we've been head down tail up for a few weeks now.
we are just about done getting the barn all cleaned out and thanks to Brian propped up - note new posts and cement on right side!!
you can see my 8 year old farm helper with me up on the bale wagon in this shot! her mom was takin' a well deserved break from helpin' thanks jess for comin' out and being game : )
I'll be happy to not buck any more hay for another year!
There were multiple vehicles used to bring in the hay
and multiple helpers at different times.. thanks Louis
these yahoo's didn't help at all!!
this dosen't look like much but I promise you it's not easy getting the bales up on top of the stack! This is abotu 7 tons of hay that we picked up out of the field stacked into the truck and trailer and then unloaded and then re-stacked into the barn - makes my back sore just typing it : )
I was happy to collect the evening eggs they are much lighter than the bales!
I did enjoy an end of day ride on hummer this evening at abotu 8:30 pm when we finally stopped it was my reward after a long weekend of farm work. - Thanks Hummer : )
