Clean up Crew

Took the donkey trailer to the "big" island today to get barley straw.  We managed to pack 36 bales into both truck and trailer, then every strand has to be covered with a tarp and tied down or you won't be allowed to board the ferry.  A royal pain and lots of extra time needed to tarp and tie.

Nevertheless it's DONE (yay!) and stacked in the hay loft which is completely full now. After the truck was moved and the gates closed, I let the donkeys in the area to clean up, which is a pastime they love!
