Haying on the Ranch

The Rancher is out baling tonight.  I told him that I was going to bed... but I have some pictures that just need to be put.  Its 10:30 pm and he's out baling, while I'm in bed writing about it.

We started second crop last week, slowly.  We have been blessed rain this week.  Not a lot, but enough to slow down progress.  We did have a little hay down-its what happens when the weather man cries wolf too many times.  He says that its going to rain, it doesn't, we cut hay.  Most of the time that works out but not this week.

94.7% of the time we have to work around Mother Nature's unplanned schedule.  We work around the storms, rake and clean up after the wind, and bale at night when the dew is on (or should be on...  Its why I never have baling pictures!). We could just do it when things are convenient.  The boys would get a lot more sleep, but we believe in doing things right.  Even when Mother Nature tries to throw a kink in the mix.
