Winter Hay Supply

Here is Gary on the tractor moving our winter hay supply so it is arranged in long rows on pallets. We'll cover it with black plastic and tack it down so it stays dry and keeps well until fed to the sheep and goats.

Guess Who's Visiting My Feeder

I put out a bird feeder this year - first for the hummingbirds and then for the bluebirds that are nesting in the bathroom vent and have succeeded in rearing three broods of offspring in a single season (and may be working on a fourth). They looked a little bedraggled so I thought they could use some food nearby. I was very pleased to see the levels of seed in the feeder going down with no squirrels around. Unfortunately, it was the big bird.
