Pigs do not bend in the middle. When they walk they do not curl around the corner like dogs – they shuffle like little fat buses. Here WaiWai’s head is quite still while his rear end tap dances across to get in line before he can continue around the corner.
So we are careful they do not grip us. I pull off all ten at the top. Then we turn off the clatter box. Alissa climbs onto the wagon and throws down another ten while I stack the ten I have gathered into the rising piles in the loft. I love stacking hay.
Then we start all over again. We worked methodically, no great spurts of energy, just plodding along. Our muscles warming and stretching. The bales just the right weight. We are both farm fit now. We could have worked for hours more but there was no rain in the forecast and we were hungry so we will finish this morning.
I hope to cut more tomorrow so if all goes well we will be loading hay all next week too.
I hope you have a lovely day.
Weather: Dammit – Just looked at the weather and there is rain forecast on Monday and Tuesday. So no cutting hay on Friday. And I cannot cut today as my hay man does not work on the weekends due to his religion. Have to wait for next Friday. The alfalfa is perfect right now. And it is cool so it will still be good in a week.
