I meant to have a post today with all the photos of the finished art in the studio, but this has been two stupendously busy days. I’ll have it for tomorrow. Meanwhile, looky here.
I’ve got the hay elevator home.
And it’s ready to roll!
Tomorrow, I’m going for 300 bales.
YEAH! Glad you all got it set up ok. Looks great!

Hay in hayloft, creep feeder in barn shelter. . . winter preparations on the first day of summer. You farmers sure are…um…foresighted.

Probably my least favorite farm job…haying. We stacked 650 bales at the rescue on Sunday. And hoses. I hate hoses! Sounds dumb I know but if I could have a spigot at every bucket I would be thrilled! 🙂

300 bales? Even with the elevator, that’s a lot of hoisting and heaving before they are stacked neatly in the barn. Hope you’ve got the muscle lined up. But what a blessing, to be able to get it in now.

So happy for you! No matter how much work, it can’t be nearly as hard as what you had to do to move hay at Stringtown! What a great feeling it must be to have “considered the field and bought it” and know your household is going to be ready for winter!

That should make loading the hayloft so much easier.
It is a good feeling to be all set for the winter.

If the animals seem a little more friendly I am sure they are thanking you for winter provisions. I bet watching those bales go up the elevator is like hearing the “plink, plink” of sealing canning jars!

I’ve never seen anything like that. Is that something you rent, or do you own it? The conveyer belt actually moves? I need to find a YouTube of one of those things in action.
