This summer in Cheyenne we have been blessed with lots of rain. Our new place has a great little pasture which has had an unbelievable amount of grass and sweet clover. We recently decided our horses were probably not going to eat all of the grass that was standing our in the pasture. So we decided to make hay while the sun is shining.
Today after all the swathers and balers left our pasture we had to put our fence back up. Fixing fence in one of husband’s favorite activities.
Look Mom it’s family togetherness!!! When I was growing up whenever we were doing something long, boring, hot, tedious, hard, etc. and I would mention my discomfort(I would never complain!) My mom would repeat what her Dad told her many time, “But this is family togetherness!! Aren’t we lucky we get to spend time together.” I would then stare at my Mother like she lost her mind. I miss my family moments, cleaning the barn, cleaning the chicken coup, haying, sorting cattle, moving cattle, dressing chickens, freezing corn. But now husband and I get to share family togetherness and he stares at me like I have lost my mind.
Husband was very excited for an excuse to start his semi.
Our poor friend, “Travis the calf-roper” Asked if he could borrow the tractor to work his arena. Husband told him to come on over, poor guy didn’t know what he was getting into… he had to help load hay. I was glad he was there, I was doing my best to look delicate and make sure I didn’t have to get too dirty.
Can you believe our 17 acres produced 10 bales!!
Hey Peach this is family togetherness! Isn’t it great?
Why do I keep getting this look?
