OMG the horses look like giant dorks in their new fly masks, but they are so much happier now!
Borrowed a grain drill from our neighbors at Oakhill Organics to seed 15 acres of cover crop at Grand Island last week with Bonnie & Patty. My friend Neal McCool brought his mules to help too. What fun!

Spent a glorious sunny day down at Grand Island with my friend Neal McCool learning to plow with his mules Bart & Bonnie. The mules with a walking plow are much lighter on the ground than a tractor would be, but even so – those are some amazing soils down there! Where else along the 45th parallel could you be plowing in January?
