After a wet summer Rod managed to get the hay in. Because the fields are at the bottom of the valley , access was too difficult  with large bailer vehicles so after cutting and turning, he collected the hay by hand and loaded onto a trailer. Now, with the new barn on the old farmhouse site he can store the hay there rather than the laborious transporting of heavy bales all the way up to the top farm buildings.                                                 

Here is a photo of our horse Hawthorn taking a much earned rest away from the flies.
