The Calm Before the Storm

The herd grazed calmly this afternoon. 

Blue skys and a gentle breeze distracted us from the big weather upset that will be here on Sunday.

The bull continues to do his important job.

The calves are growing quickly on the good grass.

Tomorrow the herd will be moved to a safer pasture.     All farmers in Vermont are trying to make the best decisions for their livestock.

Preparations continue tomorrow.   Still lots to do.   Hope you have all made preparations and plans.

Today I could not stop thinking about the Chincoteague and Assateague Ponies plus all the other wild ponies on the Outer Banks.        I always worry about them during every storm.

I do hope they can survive Irene.



  1. Just finished re-reading my ancient copies of Sea Star and Stormy, Misty's Foal a couple weeks ago.

    I've not paid attention to what's happening south, as I'm totally focused on getting ready here.

    Now I will be wondering too...

  2. Hope everyone weathers the storm safely
