Hot air balloons!

July 30, 2013

Our town is hosting the National Balloon Classic this week, which means mornings and nights where 100 balloons fly over our small farm, scaring the sheep. I was in the garden the first morning they went up and the newly-weaned lambs raced back and forth in their pen, crashing into fences. We quickly threw some hay in the feeders to distract them.

The balloons are beautiful as they glide over our pastures. Here are some photos. Come to Indianola and see them!
