Hay Adventures!

We drove at least an hour and 15 minutes to get hay that was supposed to be 45 minutes away, at most, got lost and had more hay loaded than was prudent:

With great prayers and much anxiety, it stay on until we got home

That one bale teetered on the edge the whole drive!



Be thou diligent to know the state of thy flocks, and look well to thy herds. For riches are not for ever: and doth the crown endure to every generation? The hay appeareth, and the tender grass sheweth itself, and herbs of the mountains are gathered. The lambs are for thy clothing, and the goats are the price of the field. And thou shalt have goats' milk enough for thy food, for the food of thy household, and for the maintenance for thy maidens

- Proverbs 27:23-27

"I know of no pursuit in which more real and important services can be rendered to any country than by improving its agriculture, its breed of useful animals, and other branches of a husbandman's cares."

- George Washington
