At about 6:20 am the sun started to burn through the clouds. Such a beautiful sight and I was hopeful that we would have a sunny, dry day.
Happy cows - A new round bale and sunshine on their backs :)
We traveled a couple of hundred miles today hauling round bales for the cows. Hay is scarce here - too much rain and the fields are saturated with water. Grass has headed out already and it's lodging from the weight of the constant rain. North of us the weather has been a little better and they did have a few days where they made some hay. People are driving much farther distances that we traveled to purchase it. The weatherman is predicting dry weather for the next three days. Our local hay man is hoping to cut and bale by the end of saturday if he mowed this morning. I'd love to put in new hay on sunday!
After taking her babies around picking and bugging in the sun today, Miranda and her guinea babies are calling it a day. They now roost in the big guinea house with the mature guineas. She has done a fantastic job raising these babies. I found a guinea nest yesterday with six eggs in it. As soon as their is a dozen, I'm going to put them under a broody hen. Maybe we will get lucky and get another dozen babies.
