Apologies for my lack of clarity.
But, subject just came up yesterday when I was on a roadtrip with the son - he’s the guy I call my Faux Grandson.
He took a call, put it on speaker & caller was asking if they were selling their haymaking equipment.
I asked him then:
1)was the rest of my year’s supply still in the deal
2)was someone taking over their (leased) fields
(a BIL does hay, including a field across the road & another small field - like mine- just North of me)
Got oblique answers to both.
*He’ll get the rest of my hay when he gets more of his.
*“Call Dad” about next year, he’s “got too much on his plate” & won’t be helping with haying.
Justing by the Father/Son dynamic I’ve observed, that has subject to change.
Earlier this Summer I was told the BIL would cut my field.
I told him I don’t care if it’s baled or not. Just want it down.
That hasn’t happened.
If I see BIL getting a 3rd cutting across the road, I’ll ask him myself. That may fluff FG’s feathers, as he likes to determine when & how these things get done.
The hay in my arena now is an alfalfa mix, I feed only orchard grass, so no, not anything for me on those wagons. He’s told me it’s for their Belgians. Their place has no storage for that amount of hay.
He has a habit of keeping news he knows I won’t like until the last minute. So I was blindsided.
And he knows enough about my finances - had to get new well pump & tank in August - to know this puts me in a shaky position for Winter & into 2024.
I’m more disappointed than mad.
But if I have to scramble for hay next year (assuming he’ll get me through until then) the free storage ends as I’ll need any rental to find & pay a new supplier.
I may ask about the BIL, but again, that will need to go through him unless I get “permission” to call myself.
