Latest challenge.. Hay is in short supply.

Normally, it doesn’t rain every 3 days, all summer long.

Normally, I have all my hay in the barn by now.

This is NOT a normal year.

Yesterday, the farmer who leases my fields notified me that he probably won’t be bringing the rest of the bales I ordered.  I’ve only got about 1/2 of what I need, about 375 bales.  Now, at the end of the summer, I’m scrambling to find someone with hay to sell – 450 bales of it.  Oh.  And they also have to deliver it.  Yeah…

I was researching optional feeds for goats, trying to decide if I can plant broccoli for them.  Or maybe let them out on pasture during the winter.. It’s gonna be interesting.  As usual, only more so.

If I’m lucky, I’ll be calling on my friends pictured above, to help get the rest of the hay into the barn.

Assuming I can find some hay …
