Hay in the Day


I’m planning to mostly feed round bales this winter, but I wanted a small stash of square bales. They’re handy at certain times, particularly if you’re keeping an animal stalled for some reason. Feeding mostly round bales will reduce my daily hay chores, though, so I headed in that direction for this winter.
You can see my problem with the location of this latest delivery of round bales at the moment, though. (See Night in the Hay.) The goats are already having a party.
I’ve got the cows out on the upper pasture, and I have to bring Glory Bee in to milk through that gate at the back of the front barnyard. I can see her saying, “I don’t care what you’ve got for me in the milking parlor, woman, I’m staying here with the round bales.”

These bales gotta move!

    I took this photo near the old family cemetery in Stringtown. It’s an old wooden oil tank, the kind put in place before metal tanks came into use.

    The cats aren’t the only ones who know how to hide. See all three of my cows in this picture?

    In my next life, I want to be a cat. Don’t we all???

    Tonight, I’m giving a speech in Fairmont to the Marion County Schools, so I’ve been out of pocket here preparing for this event and will be traveling up there this afternoon. Wish me luck! I’ll see you tomorrow!

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
