Ok, so it isn’t for the birds, it’s for the horses. But it sure is an ordeal to buck 6 tons of hay out of a field and into a hay barn in the hot summer sun!
The rumor this year is that there is going to be a hay shortage. The buzz in the Capital Press is that July/August is the time to buy your winter hay, because there isn’t going to be any left soon. My problem is, unless we take the roof off our hay barn and go up a few more stories, all it will hold is 6 tons. The horses will be through that way before wintertime.
So yesterday we went out to a field and bought up a farmer’s crop of hay bringing it home and storing it in the barn. Today I can hardly move. I do hope that Racer and Trav appreciate it. To bad horses aren’t as easy to care for as cats are!
