I got one more field to bale and ILL have enough hay to winter my cows.I always wonder,wheter to run those ole mama's on the stubble or fertilize em again and pray for rain,but numbers are down this year and ILL have plenty winter feed.I was baling on one side of the creek and had a neighbor working his fields on the other side,its always a pleasure to talk to him as he is in his late seventies and still ranching. I guess he is the one that got me interested in these old john deere's he had his old john deere model "B" out yesterday raking hay,I could hear that old "poppin johnny"long before I seen him,its a mighty nice sight ,see an old man down on a creek bottom field working that old john deere......................good luck

Yeap haymaker good neighbors make it all worth while..yesterday I posted about how pitiful our hay situation is...almost to the :cry2: 'n point. Then a neighbor that has nothin but hay fields (no cows) offered to let us have all his hay just for cuttin it. Somewhere in the neighborhood of 70 acres worth. I do believe the good lord is lookin out for us. Still gonna pen and cull a few and sell calves but not as drastic as we'd planned earlier this week.

We are a little dry in our area as well. Do a little custom baling. Started a couple weeks ago. So far everything I cut is 1/3 of what we got last year. It's supposed to hit 100 today, so looks like it's going to be a short season for us.

Has a nice ring to it, "Grandma Kat". You might have designated yourself a new name!

Katrina, you should have put on your monkey mask. Then the teacher would have thought you were your son's little brother. :? :)

Like hell it does.... The neighbor lady I saw the other day said" Oh Katrina, I didn't reconize you." Now how am I suppost to take that???
My view is that she thought I had lost so much weight she didn't know me. :roll: In all honesty my gray hair used to really bother me, but now I realize at least I have hair.... :D

"Your only as old as you feel"

so have someone "feel" you and see how old you are! :shock: :lol: :oops: :wink:
Hmmmmm - I thought that "old" saying was - " You're not old as long as you can FEEL!"
