Well I'm ready for some R&R after these past 8 days of bucking bales and stacking hay! The Zeep horses need 8 ton of hay on hand to get through the winter. This season I bought about half my hay from neighbors Julie & Chad of Flat Creek Farm. Gorgeous hay, thanks you guys!
It has been a great early morning workout but I'm glad to be taking a break! Those bales weigh around 50-60lbs each and I hauled 168 of them. Do the math on all that weight I was throwing around and remember, it has to be moved twice! First to load the trailer and second to unload and stack.
The remainder of the Zeep hay will come from a local fellow who will deliver and help me stack. The hay shed is filling up nicely!
Tomorrow I'm excited to have Blake Coady visit Zeep Headquarters and give me instruction on hobble training. I'll have another post about that soon. Enjoy the pictures!
20 more tons of great quality grass hay to get us closer to first cutting. We buy it, transport it, pick it up again to feed it, pick it up again as we remove manure, then haul it again when we take the manure as compost to the farm. Grass is really important to a horse rescue!
