Hay Making Time

It is that time of the year again, hay making time. I always look at it as some great exercise ! Climbing up on the hay wagon and hoping I don't pull a muscle in my leg as I climb up. Now when I get on the wagon  I have started using a ladder . Throwing the bales off the wagon onto the barn floor where my husband stacks  it in layers makes my arms sore til we get a couple of loads done. If we have a couple loads of hay usually there are two of us on the wagon and two on the barn floor. So it is good exercise throwing the bales from the back of the wagon to the person in the front . There is nothing like  the smell of freshly mown hay !

Last night Jim and I were over in Centre Hall at the Heifer Sale. We had sent over two bred heifers  for the sale. We decided to go over and watch the animals being sold. It brought back so many memories of the year we sold our dairy cows. It was a sad night for us then. But also exciting as we knew our lives would be so different . I came across this picture of our dairy cows , it was the morning we loaded the cows up on the trailer to be taken to the sale. So many good memories of our dairy life !
