We get to grips with baling thanks to a little help from our neighbours

We've been quite busy outside.  We were lucky enough to get a week without too much rain and got our hay baled a couple of weeks ago.  Wow, was that hard work?

One neighbour baled, another watched, another lent us his tractor and cart.  Quite a circus!  After about 9 hours, a gallon of diesel, and with arms dragging along the ground, we finally deposited the 428th bale in the barn.  Ouch, ouch, and thrice ouch!

Since then another paddock has been fenced, and gates are next on the agenda so that the expected inhabitants (piglets from our Gloucester Old Spot) can move in.
