A Few Firsts

A few of our spring firsts!

Here are the farm boys getting the tractor and harrower ready to plant our first planting of grass/oat hay. I even heard that our "knight" was able to drive the tractor while my husband stood on the harrower to help move the seed along...not too safe and I was glad I didn't see that stunt!

A first horse ride for our oldest young man. He is riding Hondo....a huge horse of almost 17 hands...massive but gentle guy!

First time for mom to adorn the "extra-large" bee suit and help with the bees. Here we are looking for eggs so we can force a split and gain a few more hives.
We did loose two hives over the winter but our other two hives are 50,000 strong. They were really buzzing around...amazing enough we didn't get stung.
Aren't chickens funny...they were so curious if we had "snacks" for them.
