Hay Moon ~ Buck Moon

The Full Moon in July is called the Hay Moon or Buck Moon as this is the time for harvesting the hay that will be used for feeding the horses and cattle throught the winter months. It is also when the new antlers of buck deer appear with their fuzzy coating of velvety fur.

July's Moon was also called the Full Thunder Moon, due to the thunderstorms that are frequent during this time.
