Lunchtime Scything

Yesterday, I went out at lunch to scythe down some new hay that will line the Chick-u-bator. I picked a nice, long patch that the animals hadn't grazed yet:
For some reason, donkey just won't eat it....

In about 20 minutes with the scythe, I took down quite a bit:
The sheep ventured out of their lean-to and kept an eye on things in the background.

A nice, light, mid-day scythe workout. Ahhhhh.....
I'm going to let the fresh hay dry in windrows in the field for a few days, then bring it into the shed for the next time I need to change the Chick-u-bator lining.
