Rained Off !! ... Typical !

Brighter days.....before the rain !!

Well...sadly it never rains but it pours !...and boy did it pour last night !!

And yes !.....we are rained off ! The hay was coming on great, until last nights down pour ! we have had yet more rain today...if the weather fails to continue..then its going to be back to plan B !

This will mean that the pending hay crop will be baled and wrapped up, and it will become haylage ! So if all else fails...then it looks like this is more likely. There is a fantastic crop on this field and it would be a shame to spoil it completely.
The weather, never fails to put a spanner in the works ! But at least there is a plan 'B'

If the weather continues to be so unsettled, then I shall be cancelling my cutting till later on, the week pending the 7th looks good, on the weather forecast. But every time they update it..they change their mind...and show rain.....

You just cant win !!

Yep, we too have had to pospone the hay making here... Paul will be becoming a weather forecast bore if we don't get some good weather soon!

Yep, we too have had to postpone our second lot of haymaking . . and Carl is already a weather bore!
Glad you've got a plan B, Jayne!

We've got the rain forecast for tomorrow, it's been nice here today. Hope it improves for you and the hay!

Well send the rain south! We could still do with a drop or two down here!

Drat! Hope you can get that hay harvested.

I thought your cattle might be Highland - I've only seen a few, and they were all Haggis' color.
There are a few yak breeders around here - I think they are pretty neat too.
