We do have to improvise a little here on the farm, it wouldn’t qualify as a CDE, and there are no little balls that fall when you hit, but by golly this is fun! I like these bales. I don’t have to worry about running over them… nope not in the least! They are almost our size.
The boys roused a doe out of her daytime bed and sent her running. They never missed a beat, no shy, no spook, no nuthin’!!! That is why I just love driving these guys!
We spent almost our entire drive going from field to field and this team drove into some locations they had never been before which is always fun. We peered into the neighbor’s fields, the donkey park where Luc and Galahad were shaded up and our pond from a completely different direction than they are used to seeing it. The boys were intrigued by the views.
Our main focus was the hay bale event and getting Hank to go tight and Merlin to trot so he could keep up. Here’s some more of the photos Jim took of today’s event.
We took a stroll into the Jessup Road hayfield then into the only wheat field at our place that has been harvested. From there we dropped into the south side hay field. We were out an hour and 36 minutes and made 3.68 miles, except for the wheat field it was pretty easy going for the team.
