This morning our temperature is 56 degrees, overnight low 48! I am not complaining it's just a shock after our 88* and high humidity. A light jacket works for me. Pesky insects hide in cool temps, and the sheep enjoy grazing all parts of the day. This picture was taken out of back door Saturday evening. I had a line on 40 bales of 3rd cutting hay, but the other night, the seller's hay shed flooded in the 4-7 inches of rain that fell. So the search continues. But for us a lust green August is a rarity. The trees are extra full, brilliant green all round. Beats brown dormant lawns and dry pastures. My pasture has lots of forage yet to be eaten. Another first--- grazing till or into October! There have been years the flock is on full winter hay rations by September 1st! Enjoy the cool temps, good outdoor project weather, Jerry

November 2011 I retired, sold my Shetland flock and moved to town.I live on the edge of Fergus Falls, pop 13,000. Its has been a great choice. My mother, sister, her family and my granddaughter live here. I have a garden shed that I converted into a chicken coop. Its also houses my granddaughter's pet Rabbit. My backyard will be flowers and shrubs.
