High Water Mark
There's been so much rain lately, the pig's wallow is twice the usual size.
You can see the high-water mark on Bee. The wallow is pretty deep. The pastures are growing back so well right now with all the rain, but it makes it hard to get the chores done and not be sopping wet at the end.
We have really slacked off this year in our grazing management. Last year we had them in smaller paddocks and they were moved daily. This year they are being given twice as much and are moved every two days. Even that seems like a lot! I think it has to do with how heavy Clothilde is for Ethan to carry her around and move fences.
We're hoping for a better week this week!
