Canisbay site 1

We had site 1 at Canisbay
a beautiful site
lots of privacy

We went to church at the theater
It was good and the pastor accompanied us for the songs

We found a hide from a mink at the theater

We gave it to the park rangers
(it was theirs)

We also found out that a beaver is quite big
the animal we saw during our previous trip was a river otter
not a beaver as we thought


We're back from camping this week
Look forward to some camping pictures

At an open house we attended I took a picture of this cow
I think she still had to learn how to sleep in a free-stall

Candid Barn Camera

Our Barn Camera didn't work anymore
We tested it in the house and it worked fine when hard wired
the antenna was broken

At dusk the cows go outside
We get half of them inside before it gets to dark to see
Otherwise the robot late list is very long in the morning

2nd cut part 2

The fields were cut on Tuesday

and we filled silo on Wednesday
a very warm job

Rien gets tired from going back and forth
up and down
but it's very rewarding to be done with good feed in the bunk

Heat Stress

Overall the corn looks really good

Beside the bunk on the fill... is showing signs of heat stress
The leaves are all rolled up

Even the laundry line has heat stress
The plastic coating melted off the wire

Swinging an Ax

Making enough for a big fire

Paul was giving it a try too

Fair Parade

This post got done over a few days
we had internet issues

The Fair theme was:
Have a dog-gone good time at the fair

Dairy 4-H

We saw familiar faces


It was a long parade and it was fun to see
most people were smiling on the outside
some I guess smiled on the inside

Soccer Home Game

In Canada you take your chair along to watch the game

Or you climb a tree

1-3 time to go home
