It's A Hay Day - Yea!

Today the hay for my sheep was delivered.  One more thing off of my "To Do" List for getting ready for winter.  I am really lucky as I have a great hay farmer that I buy from.  It's getting harder and harder to find quality square bales as so many of the hay farmers are going over to the round bales which just aren't practical for someone with just a few sheep.

As soon as the truck pulled in, the sheep fled out into the field.  I had tried to corral the little buggers
this morning but they were having none of it.  Larry brought Ryan with him to stack the hay in the barn.  Ryan is a bull rider who is getting quite the reputation for his skill.  He's super at stacking those hay bales too and had the job finished in record time. Ah - to be 20 again!

Dust thick in the air as he stacks the hay thrown from the truck.

As they worked, the sheep got braver and wandered back in from the field to see what was going on.  By the time they were finished, they were anxiously awaiting cleaning up what had been swept out of the truck.

Thanks guys!  See you next year.
