Making a Start

On Thursday, while playing with Pip in the living room, I looked out of the window to see my dad mowing the field outside my house. He was starting the silage.

Making bales of silage is the main job of the Summer months. It's one that I've helped with for four years now, always with a dog in tow. Now it was Pip's turn to learn the ropes. She had never been in a moving tractor before, and with her nervous nature, I wasn't sure how she'd take to the engine noise.

Thankfully, I needn't have worried. Although the movement of the tractor was scary at first, she soon got used to it.

Riding high like a pro!

It turned out that my dad was only mowing a small area to have as somewhere to wrap the bales. The grand total for the day was two. There was pleanty of room to wrap them though!

Pip looked very happy with her day's work!
