Daily Farm Photo: 6/12/06

Cary In The Hay Truck

There are 798 beautiful bales of hay stacked neatly in the barn. We are whupped but happy. Yesterday afternoon, out in the middle of the hayfield, Cary and I announced that we were quitting The Haying Crew and running off to join the circus. Our resignations were not accepted.

A year of daily photos ago: Greek Oregano Soaks Up The Sun


  1. I don't want to appear over cautious, but is Cary really old enough to drive?

  2. This made me laugh out loud. She is so utterly precious.

    Thank you for the daily sweetness.

  3. Now I will preface this comment with how much I love Cary and your "situation", but I must ask-- does dear Joe think you've lost it? Taking a stray under your wing sounds just like something I'd do, and something that my husband would rib me about (good-naturedly, of course) NON-STOP for as long as humanly possible.

    Also, how many acres is 798 bales of hay? Seems like a LOT!!!

  4. and I thought having a basset, a barn cat, a goat and three pigs was a lot of fun. I sure did miss the boat on having sheep. You have to be having the time of your life.

  5. I. Just. Love. Cary. (and your blog!) Thank-you!

  6. I would tell you how much I love this photo of Cary, but then I might appear a little bit odd. I swear I didn't cry when I first saw it. Really!!

  7. That is the most adorable picture! Now she did have on a seat belt, right?

  8. Before our two guests arrived, I never knew about sweet sheep faces. The two staying with us (hosted for a FFA student) are currently on a restricted diet before being shown and they are not happy. Lots of sweet face time for treats!

    So any good uses for wool around the garden? I've washed some for a kitty bed and put some out for the birds. Good for mulch or other ideas?

  9. Perfect image to start my day. Thank you!

    And congrats on the mammoth haymaking task. No wonder you and Cary quit!

  10. Thanks for sharing that image. We're all falling in love with little Cary out here. It looks as if her leg has healed quite a bit; is it 100%?

  11. This is one of the best pictures yet! How absolutely sweet!!

    Lindy, your comment is too funny. (I know a funny one when I see it, but can't come up with them like you all do.) :)

    FG and Cary, congrats on getting your haying done! I can't even imagine....

  12. Cary the driving lamb. I love it! Does she have a clue about how big a celebrity she is?

  13. You guys must be really hurting after all that work, (but I am even jealous about that!)
    Thanks again, Susan. I love your farm tales and pictures.

  14. Sore and tired after all that, and you're still willing to let Carey sit on your lap! She must not weigh too much yet?

  15. Hello, so happy to have stumbled across this wonderfully sweet photo and your blog. Off to fully explore now... cheers, gracia
