A neighbor of ours has sold his house. He is basically done with the life of having property. Well, the work of having property. He decided to leave Texas and head back to Florida for walks on the beach. As he no longer needed his stuff he decided to have an everything must go sale. A buddy and I went in on a convertible trailer. Part flat bed. Part stock trailer. Perfect for small time ranchers like us who need a flat bed near daily and a stock trailer now and then.
The first major task for us was to get some hay for the horses. This meant that we needed to take the top off. Uh oh…no where to put it! I know – hang it from the barn rafters (hope that old barn holds). Backed it in. Hung it up. Ratcheted it off.
And we will NEVER do that again! Poor old barn didn’t know what we were doing to it!
Then off we went to get some hay.
Four bales at a time is way better than two!
The horses didn’t know what it was that we were doing unloading huge piles of food at night. But they couldn’t wait to get into it.
And the kids couldn’t help but play in the hay as well.
