Lane suggested that I haul in some peanut hay to use as mulch. If we can move enough other equipment to get the shredder out, I'm going to shred it, as the stems are quite brittle and almost as large as my little finger, some of them. The leaves are mostly dry already.
Cur and I have picked up three RTV loads. The dump bed sure is handy on that little truck. I use a pitchfork to pick up the hay and load it; unloading is simple.
Before we picked up the last load, we rode up to the far pasture, looking at grasses. What we saw is for another post. The neat thing we saw -- Cur saw him first -- was a red fox. Cur leapt off the RTV and gave chase. Fortunately the fox was far ahead and reached the fence and was gone. Lane and Cur have seen little foxes, this is the first big one we've seen except for one dead on the highway.
