    Ewes will be moved off the new land soon so that they lamb right next to the barn and not gawd knows where.

    Pony track system is being torn down from it's current location on the small old land and being moved onto the new land. It will include the easement fence line and that D shaped area directly to the rear, and then around some over grown tree areas. They will slowly stomp down and kill the weeds and the D area I will be mowing it a lot to make it useable land. Once it's grass again, I'll shrink the track to only follow the D's fence line around and go further down along the back fence for them to keep clean.

    Got half of it moved today & horses moved into it.

    Okay, so shaded red is where ponies will be on. Darkened red is where the track will be narrowed on the D area.

    I had a hay guy....
    Had.

    He has gone MIA on me.

    Last year's 2nd cutting never happened and he hasn't responded all this time.

    No luck finding someone new.

    Probably would of been smarter to buy a new, slightly larger farm than just land. :hit

    If you don't have enough livestock to eat it all down, you know the solution there....:clap

    Seriously though I really hope you find a hay guy soon.

    Craig's List ad? Drive around and see who is baling hay and talk to them?

    Hah, fat ponies are sort of doing that. 2 white lines is horse area.
    Ewes and lambs ARE doing just that. But out of necessity. Didn't have enough hay to be feeding as I'd like, so their paddocks have no grass. :(

    Someone contacted me on FB last night.
    DH says a coworker does hay and should come by tomorrow to mull it over.
    And I have told DH that I'm going to buy a 8x10 tarp, spray paint on it and hang it on the barn facing the west neighbors, asking them itlf they are willing. Lol
