Weekends are made for catching up. I am trying to get all ready for winter. Winter is Coming. I realize it's a book and show motto but it's the truth. With one of the horses needing a dry place due to some weird hoof issue we need a second covered area. The amazing thing was getting the hoof fixed on a horse was cheaper than fixing one dog. It's no wonder there is no money in large animal care.
I had a friend send her youngest son out to help me on Saturday. Now I do pay them but sometimes I think my various friends send me their children to motivate them to seek a higher education plan. So far I am batting over 75% heading to college after working for me. I am known to not stop, no breaks and if you let me lunch break will be at 1500 every day. I am not a fan of taking it slow and easy. I try to go at it like I am killing snakes every day. The only problem with this is I am no longer in my 20s or 30s.
Plus, my back hurts!! I had a known party bring her husband out to look at the old tractor. It's gas not diesel. It's an International not a Ford. It will not start or turnover, it needs a new starter and battery first. Then some filters and oil plus more hydraulic fluid. I asked about a new seat and was laughed at. The farmer rule applies in this instant and I was told to just get it running. So I will order a few hundred dollars worth of parts and then we will see.
