No Going Back !!

Decision..made....no going back now !!
All the fields have been cut....its just up to the weather 'Gods' to be kind to us now !!

Well...its all been happening tonight !

The fields have been cut, the contractor arrived at 6pm....tonight and he eventually finished cutting at 11pm ! He has cut 3 fields....approx 15 acres....so I'll have my work cut out for the next week...or so.

So .... the deed has been done, no going back now. There is a weather forecast for sunshine and showers....!! but we might miss them. However, there is rain forecast for Tuesday here. This means the hay might be left till after Tuesday, before I start to work it !

At least the cutting is done, and if it rains heavy, you just can't get on the fields..for a couple of days at least. This could mean the difference between, getting the stuff baled..or not ! So we are just ready and waiting...for the big...'Go'

Needless to say...I'm checking the Internet..daily, hourly....or even...at every minute..to see if the crafty weathermen..have slipped a rainy day in there..just to scupper my plans !!

I don't mind a little shower or two...but I do mind a down pour for days on end.....

Pacosha has had her abscess flushed out, she now has a new poultice....and dressing on it. So we are back to doing this every day, until the poultices are clean......so it looks like a busy couple of days.....up here....weather pending.

Hi Jayne, Go for it -looks like the weather will hold. Very windy here last night but sunny today. Take care, don't work too hard - and mind your back! Shirley & Robbie
