We started tracking down and rounding up equipment last year and have yet to purchase everything we need, but with the help of a farmer/friend/neighbor, we got our 1st crop hay, cut and baled without rain. The corn we planted is starting to look pretty good since we finally got warmer weather and the shot of rain we got this morning is another step in the right direction.
Below are a couple shots of the BIG event on Sunday....(yep, that was sarcasm) You'd think we were getting the place ready for the a social event the way those two guys went about things the last couple weeks. (tiny snicker)
|THIS........is the place I sat while watching the boys bale hay. lol|
|A Pre-baling conference...............tires inflated? Check. Hitch pin secured? Check. |
Baling twine in twine box? Check..........you get the idea. (once again with the sarcasm)
|LET THE BALING BEGIN!!!|
|My brother in law, Nick, driving a 520 JD he restored. |
If it seems like I'm poking fun at the guys, well, you'd be correct. But there were so excited by the prospect of doing anything farm related, it was too cute an opportunity to let get by me. Anyone that knows me, knows I love to pick on people just a teensy bit. Ok, A LOT! Sorry, it's my dad's fault, he's a wise @$$ from way back, and his dad was one too. So, you see, I really am not to blame at all. (grin)
300 bales in the shed.........my sheep, horses, llamas, and alpacas are licking their chops.
