The rain came... 7pm tonight...despite not being forecast to arrive till tomorrow.

So no thanks to the met office, but thanks VERY much to all of you who crossed fingers, did weather dances or just got down on your knees and prayed for us ;-)  We got all the haylage in, baled and wrapped with about half an hour to spare - pheweee!!!

The baler performed beautifully all day, with only one bout of impaction colic from some extra thick grass, which was easy to clear.  The loader broke one of its grabbing arms, but that was repaired and barely slowed things down, so alls well that ends well and the horses will eat this winter after all :-)
