    1. Shelby is still needing that afternoon at the lake, the flies were biting bad the last day I could have taken her over. Since then, well, she’s been holed up in the air-conditioning! “Soon”, said mother smiling!

  1. “Busy” doesn’t quite cover it out there on the farm! Cutting, baling, and Shelby’s snoopervising – lots going on. Shelby looks ready for a break…no doubt EVERYBODY feels that way. I bet people really look forward to seeing those horses in the parade though – all shined and polished and gorgeous. Looking forward to Jake’s photos….

    1. She was way past needing a break but still wouldn’t get in the golf cart for a ride back to the house – Stubborn old girl!
      Jake’s on the crew again this year, meaning his hands will be busy but I hope he can get a few anyway. :)

      1. Oh we hope so….but his hands may be “too full” for a camera too! At any rate, don’t work too hard Miss D…….give Shelby a kitty hug from me will you? She looked quite pooped.

        Kitty Hugs, Sammy

  2. Love the hay operation. It must smell wonderful out your way. That may be the only thing I miss about haying season. Well and cooking big yummy meals for the hay crew. The heat, sweat, dust and blisters, not so much. Oh, and I guess I miss being in the great shape that haying season always got you into…. :) Happy Haying.
