~I wonder how many more times I'm
goin' to fall for the same kind of cowboy.~

Yesterday was a busy day getting the 1st cutting out of the east field and getting the irrigation goin' again. Hay Man Rudy ran out of moisture by mid mornin' and wasn't able to finish the west field. But, he did get it finished today...so guess what My Man and I'll be doin' when he gets home from work tonight?!?
|Me 'n my co-pilot!! I drive the semi truck while My Man loads the trailer.|
|A lil' bit of mirror action.|
|The backhoe was had a bad hose, so we had to borrow Hay Man Rudy's|
tractor...it was terrible for My Man to have to sit in the AC
with the Sirius radio goin' ;~)
|Oops...look what got baled up! It wasn't a rattlesnake, just a bull snake.|
He did not survive the accident.
|Cowboy 'n Bella Jo were snoopervising...they did a good job too!|
|Even though the hay got rained on (about 3/8 of an inch), it dried out|
just fine...and the dairy can't wait to get it. We were very lucky.
|I climbed up toward the rim in search of owlets and|
thought this made a pretty picture.
We're almost into July...it's never been this green in
the 6 years we've been here!
|The thirsty alfalfa plants are glad to get a drink. So, we're back|
to changin' wheel lines twice a day.

On Saturday, the local cutting club held their 2nd cutting of the season. We missed the first cutting, and we haven't had an opportunity to practice herd work, so I was pleased with Colt's performance even though we lost a pushy cow. We haven't done this since last September!
Enjoy your week!
