The tallest things around here for hours are the wind turbines. There happens to be three on the farm and they just got them all turning.
People asked me if they make any noise. Yes they do but you can't hear it unless you are literally right underneath them and even then if you are walking on the gravel lane and your shoes are making a crunch it's hard to hear them. Some people over exaggerate and say they can hear them over five miles away. IMO these people just want something to complain about. I can't even hear them in the barnyard. The horses are not bothered by the noise but Indigo was spooked by the shadows if you happened to read my last post about my most recent tumble, which really, really hurts today because of a sunburn due to polysporin on my back cuts. Note to the future polysporin using person: do not let area with polysporin on it get exposed to the sun it will burn you to a crisp.
The tip of the blades spin some 100+ KMPH. I'll have to check just how fast I forget now.
Heres my friend Keri standing on the stairs so you can see a size comparison of human to base.
Look at my shadow and the massive shadow of the base and blades way off there. This shadow is far away because it was almost 8 pm, the sun was setting.
When Indigo got freaked out by the fast spinning shadows they were short and dark, right on the gravel lane going left to right there in the picture.
All three in a row.
Finally because what used to be the tallest thing for miles in this itty bitty farming community, one of the old silo's.

Happy fathers day to all those fathers out there. A father is the only man who is not supposed to break his daughters heart.
