I forgot to report that on Tuesday evening we spent some time getting the last of the hay off. We only had one load left and it was fun to know that we were finally complete with our haying duties. The whole family came out to help. Cindy and I did the loading and the kids had the important job of wandering around on the trailer packing the hay down so we could get it all on in one load. Everyone had to have a shower afterwards with all the hay dust! This is one of the first years that we have put away hay without one drop of rain falling on it. It is very high quality hay because we had such a wonderful spring for growing...lots of rain and sun.
