We managed to get a hold of 1,400 lbs bales of Milo!
It's a Thanksgiving miracle.
I called horse neighbor's hay guy. All he had was Milo. It was tested, nitrate levels well under the safety requirements, and the protein content at 10%. And it was closer to a normal price than anything else I can find. Now I don't have to go out of State.
We hurried over there to pick up our 3 bales (but ordered enough to make it through the winter), as that is all we can manage to drag behind us, this morning. We got loaded up and started to leave. And would you know it, I can't do anything without some type of adventure.
The rubber popped off the back wheel of the trailer. We were now stuck out in the middle of nowehere Kansas. Hay guy said that after he unloaded his 2 semi-truck loads at the co-op, he would run by his house and come back with a compressor.
Over an hour later, and Medium begging to go and catch field mice to eat, hay guy arrives. His compressor wouldn't start so we had to wait for his buddy. ~sigh~ 20 minutes later, and a tire hissing from where a nail is stuck in it, we were on the road. Made it home fine.
Unloaded one bale out in the field. Winston the bull was so overcome in joy that he bucked and spun in the air as he bellowed. What a sight.
But now I am several hours behind on my pie making.
Happy Turkey Day!!!
