First Day of Fall

Today was the first day of fall! And, it was such a gorgeous day! I enjoyed every moment of it. It was perfect weather for baling hay for the cattle herds. This week, we are finishing baling hay for the year. It has been a long season but good season. We have quality hay to feed cows and calves through the winter.
