The first two of our expected cria are due on October 2nd. Which had me realize today that we will officially be on cria watch in a month.
It also means that we're about two months away from the first snow and the end of our growing season.
Which means we're about two months away from learning if my bet on the hay prices was good or bad.
I'm feeling optimistic about this coming winter. Much like I always feel about the first signs of spring. But this winter I am looking forward to lots of snow and fully-frozen lakes and the end of a terrible fire season.
