And The Summer Rolls On

Fun on the farm

Summer on a farm with the great weather and horseback riding is wonderful! However, it is also time to prepare for the winter months here in Maine!  Cutting and baling the fresh hay brings the awesome smell of newly cut grass.  Bringing it in from the pasture and storing it up in the hayloft requires a lot of work and energy!  SandyBoy, even during the summer when he is grazing in his pasture, eats a bale of hay a day.  In the winter, horses eat more hay as it helps to keep them warm. 

Once the hay bales are brought in on the farm truck, then they are placed one by one on the conveyor belt and up they go to the hayloft.  There, they are stacked in readiness for use later in the year.  This type of work is hard, but rewarding knowing that quality hay will be available for all the horses in the barn.  This is the first cut from the hayfield and we hope there is enough rain, as well as sun, to grow a second cut!  It is still early in the summer so we will wait to see what happens in the next couple of months. The more hay the farm produces, the less we need to buy from someone else which is a cost savings!

My Special Horse

Unique relationship I have always believed that a relationship with a horse is unique.  People find it hard to believe that a horse has so many emotions and expresses those feelings in many ways. ...
