Flashback: George with the cutter

George was the litte Hackey pony that we first drove,
The late Bill Robertson loaned him to us for the winter.
He was very willing, and taught us lots.
That was many years ago. Just look at Ian & Annie.
We still use the same cutter with Jack & Bonnie.
But draft size shafts.
This little cutter has given us alot of pleasure.

Talia rides Jack

It's late November but still good for an outing.

Michelle comes for hay

This is my way to load a pickup truck with hay with 4X4 bales.
One on its end, and one on its side.

Great day to spread manure

           Dorothy came to the farm a city girl but she definitely is a farm girl now.
She loves spreading manure in the north field with the old JD spreader.
