Last night Dad had to go to a meeting so it was just Mom, Boomer and I to hold everything down.
We checked water at 3:30 in the afternoon and then Mom took us for a little ride around the place.
The alfalfa is looking … little blooms are popping up all over. You don’t want lots of bloom because the plant puts all the protein into the bloom. But when the blooms just START the protein is perfect for feed.
This will be the last cutting for the year.
Mom, Boomer and I saw three Turkey Buzzards flying over us…I’ll bet they are after the dead raccoon over on the upper end.
Mom says the grass is really looking good…too bad we don’t have any cows. But Mr. Davis’ cows will enjoy when they get here in February.
Mom stopped and enjoyed the view on the Back 40 — she told Boomer and me she really likes seeing the Rabbit brush in bloom. After lots of photos we headed on over to the new hay field where we had to change the water for the last set of the day.
We saw some young Chico plants starting to grow big…that is always good. Mom and Dad really like Chico bushes. So having some to replace the ones that were burned is nice.
On the way back in we saw a really tough cat taking a dust bath in the corn field. A dog just doesn’t mess with Sam if he values his nose. No sireee….noses are nice things to have.
We only see the ‘house cat’ when we are inside. We have an agreement with her (and with Sam) we won’t bother you so you can leave your claws in your paws.
We had to go back out at sunset to change the water for the night. Boomer and I really enjoy helping Mom. We hope you enjoyed seeing some of the stuff we see when we help Mom.
Life just doesn’t get much better does it?
Fuzzy and Boomer, of course!
