Taking out the Sheaves

December 15, 2014
"What's in the pasture?"

What’s in the pasture?

"Oh, it's the cows."

Oh, it’s the cows.

Grazing season is over here, so it’s time to start hauling the hay to the cows.  Who’s the boss?  The cows or me?

    What’s on the AM dial there? What are we driving these days?

    When does the grass start growing again there? April? May?

      I have no idea, the antenna is busted…vine maples are hard on trucks… . The usual song is the Aussie “singing” to the coyotes. Still driving “Coral”

      April, and thank heavens we are getting enough rain now, the last two winters have been too dry. Shows in the grass and hay quantity the following season 😦 Bring on the rain winter!

    Yes yes who is the boss? Silly humans and their shiny triggers and buttons… but don’t get me wrong: we must work with the land as equals! Happy holidays, Matron.

      Yes, and it’s warmish too 🙂

        I have envy too. Both the sun and the warm. We still have snow on the ground

          This is fairly typical for December, it can be cold and wet, but sometimes we are in the split, the storms head to California and north into Washington and Canada.

    I would say the boss is sitting in the truck supervising things! 🐺

      Indeed, it was sure “helpful” for him to tell me there was something out there in the pasture…as if.

    I dunno who the boss is, but like you, I spend a fair amount of time hauling the sheaves to the beeves — in the rain, in the snow, in the sleet, in the hail, in the heat…
