memories of green grass

Just a short month ago, we were still able to move the ewes onto fresh grass every week or so, because the grass was still growing.

Perhaps due to the unusually chilly August, however, our grass gave up the ghost sooner than usual this year.

This was their last move. As soon as this was eaten down, they were put back into one of the decimated larger pastures and we started to hay. We usually can hold off on that until the end of October. Ouch! That will be a direct hit on the farm pocketbook.

We found two tiny pockets of greenish grass and moved the last few lambs onto it this morning. They were certainly very appreciative for that bit of green.
