Corn Harvest

This is Cord, Beth's horse. I put him in the front of the barn today so that he can watch the corn being harvested. He's a curious kind of guy and will enjoy it. Do you see the big combine in the back ground. It has pulled up to the road and is unloading the corn in to huge semi trucks.
And here is the combine behind the barn. The alpacas are all a little nervous with the activity but they too are very curious and sometimes get a little brave and walk toward the fence. It's ok, girls, they will be done in about 3 more hours.

Couldn't resist getting a few extra pictures while I was out there. This is Lyra, born last spring. And there's little Libra behind her. Is 60 degrees and sunny, absolutely beautiful so I took Libra's coat off.
Don't you just want to rub your hands and face in that awesome fleece?

Changes
15. I am getting much better at accepting help from friends and neighbors. Billie reminded me just the other day that I don't have to pay for everything. Sometimes, folks just want to help.
16. I'm learning how the faucet in the barn works. It was bubbling water up around the base. When I called Garrett, the well digging man, he said that it's probably ok, but he will stop over and check it. Apparently when the faucet handle goes down, the water drains out in to the ground. Maybe because the ground is wet and we have clay soil, it's bubbling up. Hope that it won't be a costly thing.

Hi Cord! from your Mom! What a great weather day for harvesting the crops! Sunny & 60's!! We are supposed to have a few more days of unseasonably warm weather, so the animals will get to enjoy some more "sun bathing". Hope the barn pump isn't a major project!!

Thanks for continuing your comments about changes. I have two friends who are caring for spouses who have terminal illnesses. Your comments give me hope that they too will find their way through these changes.

I always love your alpaca photos. They are sooo cute! I hope to see one in real life some day. :-)
