I can't walk out my barn door without gasping in delight at the burst of colors on the piney ridge running along the edge of my land. This is the spectacular week of peak foliage here in the middle of New York State. The weather has been cooperative and provided us with sunshine and mild temps to be outside and enjoy the show. The flock is still enjoying a hillside covered with lush, green grass. This time two years ago I had been feeding hay for a month already. Local farmers are getting third and fourth cuts of hay. I'm happy for them and all the animals that will have full bellies through this winter.
