Summertime and the living is easy...

...if your name is Hank and you order room service.

Sometimes when the pasture is too tempting, the herd can't be bothered
to come up to the barn in the morning, so I go to them. They have me very well trained.

  2. Amazing to see how well trained you all are. They must know the fly gel around the eyes helps them. Plus they trust you explicitly. Have you ever filled in the ruts in their path? I noticed a farm by us that recently did but it seemed like a lot of work. Love the videos. Lisa G. in TN

    1. The ruts get filled in...sort of...when the wind blows. I think the morning shadows make them look deeper than they are.

  4. You, Hank. Lucy and 'the boys', George & Alan are quite a team. Love it! (I can only imagine what Smooch and JohnnyCCat were doing in the meantime :- )

  5. Any day Lucy doesn't have to wear a grazing muzzle is a great day for her. Hank is indeed worth every bit of his high maintenance. Loved this sweet start to the day. Thanks.

    1. Funny you should mention it...Lucy and the boys are all sporting their grazing muzzles as of an hour ago. It's going to be a long summer.

    2. Oh dear. I'm sorry. I know it doesn't help much telling yourself that it is in their very best interest. Nor does knowing that they probably don't agonize over the "injustice" half as much as you do... Anyway, I loved the video -- and your ability to treat/spoil Handsome Hank while still videotaping!!

    Just curious, what kind of fly spray do you use? I haven't found anything that works for the flies over here so far...

    1. I've been using Pyranah for the last few years. It lasts the 24 hours between applications.
