Early to rise . The alarm clock sounded today at 4:10 am ,and it will again tomorrow. The guys are working in Ma. so Bob likes to be on the road early. Once you wake the critters you have to start getting everyone out and fed. This morning everyone was out before 6:30. I try not to put the hounds out before 6 so they do not wake the neighbor.

This morning when I got up (4:40am) there was frost on the pumpkins,and on my truck (33out side) In preparation of the change of seasons, Bob and I worked in the hay fields Friday night. The neighbor, cut to harvest, his hay last week. Friday , Bob and I purchased 150 bails for Nickel and helped to get the rest from the field to the barn. Today (Sunday we went apple picking (wow what a shock on the sticker price) We took home 18lbs for 20.00 and I did some more canning.

Well this sure re defines "sleeping in the dog house". We have lost 2 1/2 hrs of day light due to the sun set , but the dogs can stay out longer with the shelter. Yay. Today the green tin roof went on.
We are about to go into hunting season so we got orange vests to protect Mini, Nickel and Lance they get the most exercise, do not want anyone to mistake them for turkey.
Tomorrow will be crazy I have a cooking(crock pot only) contest at work and then we are taking part in a antique auto parade.

Tonight it is supposed to get cold / about 30. Hard to believe when I got home from work it was beautiful. Bobby was on Nickel while I started dinner,then I took Nickel for a ride. The horses feel the cold air, Nickel was very spunky. After dinner we started a fire and picked 2 huge bags of tomatoes,don't want to loose them to frost.We covered the herbs with tarps, hope to bring inside this week end. Mini is tucked in his stall, and the dogs and cats are in. Pig and Nickel are still sleeping out side, Nickel loves being out.

Oh ya , when you are building a farm there is no such thing.
So we got up early as we do 7 days a week we tried to have our coffee then Nickel yelled so we did our "regular" chores. Then we cleaned the stall walls and put the tack room back together . The tack room got a little disheveled when the electrician came Friday to hook up the generator. The baby gate is so the barn cats can get away from the dogs.
