Splendiferous!

It was so gorgeous today I even passed on drumming....


 The blankets were not on the girls for long this morning.  The sun was bright and there was no wind.


A good opportunity for some grooming (which we did in the paddock).


 Moon had a short workout in the indoor.  She is such a smart little cookie.

 Gary had put the pups in the back yard, where they (and Seymour) waited for me to finish up.






When I got back in the house, there was an email waiting for me from the other Lorie regarding hay.  There has been a shortage around here and it has tripled in price.  A nearby farmer had 500 bales of first cutting available at $6 per bale.  Lately it has been as high as $8...normally around $3.50. Anyone who did not buy a years worth during the summer months has lost out. 

Anyway, we decided to go see it and thought it was very nice.  Lorie called a friend to borrow a truck...
 and within a short time it was stacked up in the loft.  What a find.
 The fields and pastures are in pretty good shape, but we are supposed to get some rain tomorrow.
 That should get the grass growing.
While I was out back I picked the pasture. 
 
 Didn't do evening chores until 6:30.
It was 50 degrees inside the barn.  Sweet.
There must have been a lot of rolling going on this afternoon....piggies again.



 
 Asparagus was still on sale so I made "biggasalads" for dinner. 
 (I think Sharon Creech would say that).
Night all.

PS
Regarding the Florida Delegation...they are livin' the life down there.


 What a change of scenery from Brockport!
Keep those pictures coming.....

    What a deal on the hay. We're stocked until June - hay is around $14 a bale for small bales right now.
