Second cut

Second cut haying is right on time. We got our first cut Memorial Day and the call to get second cut came Sunday afternoon. The sky threatened our plans all day with big gray clouds and it was pretty cool so the hay had to sit before baling til about 3:30, but we hightailed to the field and managed to pick up and get into the barn 140 bales in about an 1 1/2 hours. Lauren, grandaughter and pony paid us a visit and as we left the field after the second trip, the raindrops started but, thankfully, not for long. We have been getting our hay home with pickups for too many years now so we are buying a multi-purpose trailer this week to make one trip with 150 bales. We aren't getting any younger! We now stand at 1/2 way to done for haying. Yea!
