    Longhorm Family Sends Out for Fast Food ...
    ... meaning that a good rain is needed on their pasture, as the long green grass is turning to short brown stubble. So they put in an order for a whopper-size bale of good hay from friend Josh.
    We have noticed that Geneva, the brown/white cow, will eat the hay and leave the dry grass, but “Red,” one of the red cows, will still nibble at the stubby brown grass. We figure she is saving the hay until there is no grass left to eat.

    Bucky, the little cute burro, and his mentor, adviser and stablemate Lady, the little mini-mare and senior Homestead Critter, are doing fine in the hot, humid weather, as they have a window fan to cool them and discourage any flies.
