The First Day

I picked seven from more than 200 pictures, if you’d like to see the rest before I post them, click on my Flickr link on the right towards the bottom. Click on any picture to enlarge.

We spent the actual first day driving to Kansas at a leisurely pace, and arrived about sundown, so these pictures are from the second day on the farm. The time came to put hay out for the cattle, separated on three different pastures. The hay barn is about 100 yards behind the house, and across each wide entrance an electric ‘fence’ is stretched.

DH pointed the wire out to Rosie, saying “No touch.” Proving that the stubborn spirit has not skipped a generation in either of our families, Rosie nodded and repeated DH’s words “Nah tah!”. She spoke the words as she reached for the wire. She giggled in defiance until she connected with the current, then her face contorted into a painful expression. Then she cried a little. It did not cause her any injury – low voltage – and DH and I thought Rosie had learned her lesson. We were wrong. Rosie grabbed that same wire twice more!

Meanwhile, the older girls climbed on the massive stacks of hay bales, and passionately made it ‘rain’ hay on us as we stood below. Soon, Rosie joined in and I snapped some great pictures!
