We started laying in our winter hay supply this past weekend. We’ve had to keep hay year-round since our pasture was too beaten down by the sheep this year, but for winter, we have to stock up even more as all the animals will need it, not just Beulah Petunia. We stock it up to the rafters under the porch, and more is kept down in the bottom in sheds and shelters and under tarps and everywhere we can put it. It’s hard to get hay when it’s snowing.
Buttercup is enjoying his new hay tower for napping, but soon the chickens will get up there and start making nests. They get really discombobulated as one hay bale after another comes down, disrupting their attempts to decorate their apartments!
