In the lengthening shadows of shortening of daylight hours, Mike and I inspected the ram pasture on Wednesday. Thanks to three solid rainy days, the grass is in good shape. But we noted the length of time they've spent on this field and deemed it time to change pastures.
The wet weather means no second mowing just yet. But we're entering a sunny dry spell. Hay is imminent. It's the stretch before Labor Day. Heath Fair, Cummington Fair, Franklin County Fair. Hay time.
Storms have wreaked a bit of havoc here. Thanks to a close encounter of the electrical kind, the farm phone is out and internet service has slowed to a trickle. I use to curse and swear and get really bent out of shape over such matters but I'm heeding recent lessons on keeping perspective :-) I do apologize for the delayed post.
Here are some favorite moments from our pasture stroll. The big boys were especially mellow. Zero angst. It was sweet.
Mike and Holly moved the boys to fresh pasture yesterday. Fresh grass makes them incredibly giddy, even though they still had plenty where they were. It makes their day.
P.S. : I have some good news for a lucky Sheep Shares member - Gretchen S. has won our summer yarn stash give-away!
