My tractor sprung a leak the other day when Mr. President was loading sheep dung. Luckily, he just shut it down and told me. It was just a loose hydraulic connection on the front bucket. The real problem is I don't know how to replace the hydraulic fluid. I had to read the manual and find out that the transmission fluid is the hydraulic fluid. It is low so no driving the tractor until I refill it. The tractor has 68 hours on it, at 75 hours I have to change the oil, oil filter, transmission filter and transmission fluid. One more solid day of cleaning up the barn lot and we will be at the maintenance mark.
|Those light eyes in the middle are the storage room above tack room.|
I am going to drag a couple of railroad ties over to put under the door so the sheep won't have to step down 1.5 feet. I will build the area up with some rocks and dirt.
|Jug completed and ready for sheep.|
All this stuff was down inside the walls buried in hay dust and sheep dung. Most of the horse shoes are from draft horses and still have the nails in place. We figure they are from shoes that were thrown off by the horses.
There is another storage room above the tack room now. This is going to be the staging area for the large window. I don't want to try and drag the window up the entire outside of the barn.
