The flowers are still blooming, but I know that summer is just about over. We have been busy getting things ready around the farm for the coming winter weather. There was a lot of rain in the spring, but this summer has been hot and dry. I spent time going through all the pastures and checking all the fence lines for burr weeds and sticker bushes. The burr weeds and sticker bushes are terrible for the horses manes, tails, and fetlock feathers, not to mention the sheep fleeces! I spend lots of time making sure all the pastures are clear of all these weeds!
We did get a bit of rain the other day. The pastures sure do need it.
