We had 4 days in a row without rain!
And then it rained again...
But in those 4 days, the ground did dry up enough that we were actually able to get out and about a little bit.
Yep...that is one big pile of poop.
The other pile is pretty full and he was making a mess of the new gravel, so he decided to just pile the rest in the paddock. We will spread this on the pastures and hay field after we get our first cutting.
You can see how wet things are. There was still standing water...but he didn't get stuck.
It's not perfect, but a huge improvement.
The cows were more than happy to get kicked out to pasture while Daniel was moving manure.
This hill pasture has been getting a lot of attention lately because it is the only pasture that has been dry enough to let the cows out on.
Blast has been with the herd servicing a couple of our girls.
It was time to pull Blast away from his herd and put him back in with Mitchell.
A fight always ensues while they determine dominance.
It's always a little nerve wracking to stand by and watch, but it doesn't usually last too long.
Blast won status as the boss...as usual.
The sunshine has brought out the beautiful flowers.
And yes, this pictures is zoomed in an cropped so you can't see all the weeds I haven't attacked yet.
Daisy followed me around the whole time I was outside.
She tires easily, but being out and about is good for her stiff hips.
And just as she is trying to rest...along comes Nash.
There was so much growling I couldn't tell if they were having fun or if Daisy had had enough. I just watched their tales to make sure they were still wagging.
He is as wiggly and distracted as a two year old.
But he does know how to be bribed into good behavior with treats.
