Easter Sunday Reading
That's Hazel like all the sheep we have around here they are always hungry. I still say the only reason they follow me around so readily is they think they are going to get food out of the deal.
Well I got all the old wire pulled out of the Alfalfa field today. A huge pile of it is now filling my trailer with the sides on it.
I then put the blade on the tractor and pulled all the posts from the old fence line except five or six in the back that were still solidly in place and in good condition.
The flat bed trailer is completely stuffed with all the other junk I got out of the pasture.
As usual the neighbor dogs showed up Friday afternoon and haven't left yet. I guess they just know I am going to be outside all weekend so just come to hang out and beg for food. I don't really mind since mostly they just lay around but they do chase the cats and the cats get really pissed at me for not running the dogs off.
Here's the mud pit behind the barn. I swear I am going to get this drainage problem fixed this year. I have made some progress on it since now it's only the size of a small garden pond. I just need to scrape up the extra funds to buy a metal culvert to put in. Seems like something more pressing always comes up and keeps delaying the culvert.
I finished the ethnic engineering on the plow this afternoon but ran into a slight problem. My cross bar idea worked perfectly but the top hitch is too far back and I don't have an adjustable arm that reaches out that far. I tried rigging up something with a bit of chain just to move it but it allows the plow to fall backwards.
Funny thing is the plow actually works I just need to figure a way to be able to raise it off the ground.
More ethnic engineering work is in order here.
Keep Prepping Everyone!!!!!
