If you follow this blog, you know I'm up for errands - there is a whole category of posts about them: just click on the label "agribusiness!"
With the forecast indicating five days of rain during the week ahead, the freshly shorn sheep were not likely to get out of the barn to graze, and the plan was to get a few bales of feed hay to get them through the week. Moussa calculated six bales would be needed, so we headed over to Patchwork Pastures to pick it up.

Patchwork has a lot of activity underway. There are chicken and beef operations, as well as the flock of sheep. I understand they do a little rescue work as well with older animals - I hope to follow-up on this and learn a little more about what's happening with this.
We made short work of collecting the hay and were soon on our way back to Wisteria, unloading the bales into the barn. Moussa was sure to let the sheep know that the hay had arrived and they would be taken care of during the coming monsoon.
Meanwhile, that just whet my appetite for more agribusiness ventures.
