|That's me, waitin' for some action.|
HOWDY FOLKS! Pinto the BlogDog here. How're ya all doin'? It couldn't be prettier here today. The sun is shinin', it's about 88* outside, and there is not a cloud in the sky. This is crop growin' weather! It was rainy for a coupla weeks, which was good - the land was desperate for rain. The farmers were very happy for the rain to come. But now, the growin' plants need warmth and sunshine!
|The wheat has grown a lot in the last coupla weeks,|
what with the rain and sunshine.
That white bar at the bottom is the irrigation pipe.
|Wheat being irrigated. See the heads that have formed on the top of|
each plant? That's where the little wheat kernels are growing,
getting heavy and plump, and full of nutrition.
|Sugarbeets are comin' right along.|
So this is what's goin' on:
The wheat is growin'.
The sugar beets are growin'.
The pasture grass is gettin' gosh-durned tall.
The hired man comes every day to irrigate the crops.
The farmer comes every day and s-t-a-r-e-s at the crops.
The sugar beets are being cultivated.
The horses are grazing. That's all they do. Heads down, eat, eat, eat.

Oh, and the horses both wear flymasks. That's what's on Merrygold's eyes. It keeps the flies out of her face, the sun, dust and wind, too. Pretty helpful.
Well, gotta go. It's dinner time! Y-A-Y!!! Dinner time! Dinner time! Dinner time! The best time of the day! (other than breakfast-time). Catchya later!
Keep your tail waggin'!
