Life On and Off an Acreage

In-sights into moving from an Acreage back to Town, plus a few things I find of interest.

Two things that horses are scared about:

1. Things that move
2. Things that don't move

More Exercise!

At 07:45 early, I got the call. "Your hay is cut and bailed, and it's going to rain! " The rain forecast was almost a sure thing because we only say 6 rain free days in July. Every body was working so off I went to haul hay.
It was kind of peaceful in the field and you could hear the sweat fall.

BEFORE
 Looking east, the sky was very clear
AFTER
 When I finished, the western sky did not look so good.
ONE OF 5 LOADS


32 BALES
I just got the last load in the shelter and the thunder rolled in. 150 bales tucked away and 150 more to go. Hopefully, the next lot will be done under better circumstances, and there will be some help available!

I finished at 3 pm and was I stiff and sore! Get an Acreage and some horses and you don't have to go to the gym for exercise.

Life is GOOD on the Acreage!

lol! so true! i went and bought 8 bales the other day and by the time i was stacking #6 (after several hundred pounds of feed and seed too), i was dragging.

so did you set the timer for the camera or did someone pop by enough to click the shutter for you? :)

I like seeing Ian out doin' an honest day's labor. It makes me feel good about my fellow man. You DO look nice and trim!

That is quite a stack of bales in the bed of your truck! Having a farm, and animals, to take care of is quite a bit of work.
