The man spent a lot of this and last month haying in Paonia, having mowed and baled three places, with one more cutting to go. The last three days were perfect haying weather for here, with the rains to begin next week, so we wanted to get it done. We have never cut our hay this early, and with such a short season, we only get one cutting per year. The irrigation ditches have been off, and the grass is in a perfect stage, not too ripe, and by cutting and baling this early, the meadows have a chance to grow back before the fall, for grazing.
He mowed and the next day tedded, I raked and he baled right behind me, and he baled the last bale before it rained. whew.
Ajax and Helana love to bee able to see the meadows again, and Alfalfa thinks he is a dog.
“I may be a dog, but I’m still a lamb.”
“and I still need my bottle even though I eat grass.”
Lillian and the twins are doing very well, but she has a hard time keeping the weight on because of both of them nursing.
and fat Acacia has about a week to go to have her calf.
his pockets are always a surprise.
