Making Hay While The Sun Shines

The hay was mowed two days ago.  Today, Rodney came with my favorite farm implement, the hay rake.  He rakes it into rows so the baler can easily bale the hay.  This year, because haying is about two months behind due to weather, those rows of hay are very thick.  I hope we get a lot of bales.  Rodney keeps 2/3 of them as payment for the baling, I get 1/3 for our goats for the winter.

I love the design of the hay rake. It's so simple, yet so effective.

    Holy canoli! That is thick. I’m surprised he can do it with that little machine.
