A couple of days after Goatgate, it came time to unload some hayracks. This is a rack of hay bales, each weighing 50-60 pounds because it was so damp. There are approximately 25 bales per layer.
This is the Admiral. She weighs, on a good day, a hundred pounds. Her job is to move the bales to the existing stack of straw so that her father can stack them against the far wall.
Can she do it?
Oh yes she can.
Over and over again.
Then the Studmuffin stacks them. Over on the other side. Walking on straw is like walking across really soft sand, with sinkholes in it.
Together, they do this. Over and over again.
Did I mention that it was still well over 100 degrees that day? Nothing like sweating through a pair of leather gloves to convince people you’re working for a living.
And when they were done with that, they headed off to get MORE.
