Hello From OwyheeStar
~Cliff, Shela, and the Weimaraners
August 29, 2020
Yesterday, they arrived to cut our hay. I love watching the process. It is incredible how fast they travel across the field. (Boom–and it is cut.) We only have about 25 acres of hay. So, far we have 190 (4′ X 4′ X 3) large bales. I love watching the stack grow–now, if they are worth something, it will be even better.
Otherwise, the harvest continues–onions, wheat, potatoes, beans, etc. Later the sugar beets will join the fun.
No sooner had the summer pups left, than Henri whelped a fall 2020 litter.
It is Henri’s first ever litter and well, who could have guessed that she would produce ten puppies. Manfred sired the litter, and this means some of these pups will be Longhairs. Above is the firstborn pup within a couple of hours of his arrival. Isn’t he adorable?
This Week On the Blog…
Thanks to our faithful OwyheeStar contributors–they make this all possible. We sincerely hope our readers enjoyed these updates as much as we did, too.
Once again, we find our supply of blog material running low again. If you can help, send me a note. It would be greatly appreciated.
If you have a story that you will let me share–I need at least three sentences and a decent photo. I prefer to receive it via email. (FYI–we only use stories that feature the OwyheeStar Weimaraner).

On a very personal note
Cliff put in the new shelves for our food storage pantry. We had shelves in there, but we used what material we had available when we moved in. The previous shelving was not as deep, not as study as these–no bend in the shelving here despite the shelf’s weight. We still need to install the trim and the door, but I am ever so happy to have this area upgraded.
The tomatoes we bought for making sauce came from the Malheur Nursery located near Cairo Jct. South of Ontario on the highway toward Vale. The variety she sold me was called Bobcat–and as you can see, they were quite lovely. There are 61 pints of homemade pasta sauce on the new shelves. It is a start.
