Green Grass, Blue Sky

Is it possible to have too much grass on a horse farm?   Hardly!   But what a wonderful "problem" to have!   :-)

Fabulous May weather has caused the grass pastures to grow really well again.   Of course, good pasture management is part of the overall formula.

Lime.   Fertilizer.   Controlled use of the fields.   Mowing, mowing, and more mowing!   All of these things have helped our fields become the lush greenlands that they are today.

Later this week, sheep will be moved into this field which is viewable from our Kearsarge Mountain webcam.   And occasionally, we let horses into the plusher pastures for some afternoon feasts.

Such a difference from only 8 weeks ago when white snow dominated this view.   But for now, it is green.   The songbirds love it.   The horses love it.   The sheep love it.   Our boarders love it.   We love it.

Today, the view is green.
