The Best Stuff on Earth






















I love hay.  I mean love it.  When you have livestock, you need hay.  I guess some people have the luxury of being able to graze year round, but I think they're the exception and not the rule for most parts of our area.  I rely on hay through the winter and sometimes in the summer if we have a drought.  I also feed hay when I have animals in pens without pasture access.  Hay is crucial.  Every time I get a new bale or load of hay, I feel a huge sense of relief!  I'm sure other livestock owners will agree with me on that one.

We just got a new bale of hay yesterday....a beautiful first cutting, just baled in the past few weeks.  It smells heavenly.  I swear, there is nothing at all that smells better to me than freshly cut hay, and freshly baled hay is a close second.

Some people feel secure with a loaded bank account.  Others (like my sister) feel secure with a stocked pantry.  I feel secure with a new load of hay!

You're so right! Nothing like a stockpile of something vital to make you feel calm. :) Beautiful hay!

What a great post!!! I sure wish there was a way I could smell it from here! I hate Walmart shopping but love the feeling that you feel once you're home and everything's put away!! The best! Love you, Momma
