We have hay!

      It is haying time in our county and on the ranch.
These are the first days of perfect hay weather that we have had all summer. Today was our first cutting and usually by now, we have already had one or two cuttings. Thank goodness for several dry days in a row over Labor Day week-end!

   Most farmers bale round bales here for cows and square bales for horses. We grow cow hay - Coastal Bermuda mixed with some Bahia. The really good news? We got 94 bales today! Fingers crossed for a good second cutting soon before we lose the heat.
