Hey! Haywagon got a facelift.

This is cause for great excitement!  Karl rebuilt the bed of the haywagon.

It may not seem like that big of a deal.  However, after using it last year while watching your step to avoid one of two holes, or hoping not to make a new hole, a solid, sturdy, and even pretty flatbed is a thing to rejoice over.  This is a much used tool on GrassStain Farm.  It is good to have it ready for work.

Too bad our bluegrass band isn't around; it'd make a great stage.

Pine View

The green, green grass of home!  These pics are from the top of a pine tree looking northeast.  The cows you see as small dots are in paddock #2 having already grazed paddock #1 just to the south.

Did you know that grass can have more protein than grain?  Bob uses intensive grazing methods so the cows are run into a small pasture (paddock) to eat the top half of the grass.  Then, depending on the size of the paddock, 1 or 2 or 3 days later they are run into the next paddock to eat the grass there.  This way they are always getting new growth grass which is the best.  The most nutritious.

Makes ya wanna eat a salad or something! :)
