Q: What does the term "between hay and grass" mean?
     A:  "Between hay and grass" is Old West slang for a young person being neither a boy (or girl) or a man (or woman).  It is also said of seasons, it being neither winter nor summer.  In regards to farmers, it has been written that it was used to describe the time of the year when very little could be done in the fields.  Of course, a good farmer would be anything but idle, even during these months.  The phrase has also been used to reference what a farmer finds upon his table during these same months.  It has been written that the cattle tend to look "somewhat gaunt" during this time. 

The term is believed to have been coined between the 1860's and the 1880's and is essentially a reference to anything in a transition stage.
