OK, I can understand if you really need hay stored for winter, but I have seen bigger windrows left behind by my lawn mower. Did the horses need something to do? Certainly the kids look excited. Excuse me sounding so critical, but I would have asked FabHub the same thing. Seems better to let it grow and allow the animals to winter graze it.

Sandy, your windrows "left by your lawn mower" left just shy of 100 bales of fresh, pesticide free hay for our animals that we grew right here and did not have to purchase!

Any farmer knows its a fine line to allow your animals to graze your hay fields, as not to destroy them... Especially during Michigan winters that have at least 4 months of a solid 3 ft. of snow on them.

Actually, on this 90 degree night we just wanted to work the horses and family for giggles and take a few photos in all of our spare time just for the blog, NOT...

Assumptions are simply that, assumptions and you own them, they are all yours and all incorrect...

And you are excused...

Ah yes, assumptions. Not always so incorrect as they may seem on the surface. It is all about perspective and mine comes from many years.
