John Deere had a good deal on Tractors and since we have a big need of one....
Had to take a photo with the new Hay Shed in the background.
Figured taking photos now, would be a good thing, because this is the cleanest you will ever see this Tractor.
Plan on putting it to work after lunch!
DH, really wanted an enclose one, with air conditioning but the cost was just a bit more than we could handle. Would of been nice with the heat we have here but the canopy is a cheaper compromise.
Will at least keep the sun off our heads. Will also make the chores on our new Farm, a lot easier!
I am very glad the hay shed has finally arrived. Want to Thank Bucky for doing the foundation and being there to make sure the shed was placed where I needed it. Hay Shed is fairly close to where the horses are, so feeding shouldn't be a problem.
More than enough room to put a years worth of hay in, for 3 horse's and a sheep.
Below you can see the Shed being placed on the blocks.
During the 3 day Holiday, Christmas, Yule, what ever you want to call it, the family did a lot of fencing.
We wanted to get as much done as possible, so the horse's and sheep can finally have a place to run and play. Being in that round pen this long, is hard on them.
The gates are in, a 6' for use to walk through during feed and so on and a 12', so if I need to use the tractor we will be signing for, hopefully, sometime today, it will be easy to do work in the pasture.
All that is left to do is build a housing for the Charger, get it plugged in, will be using an extension cord for awhile and get the grounding rods connected. As soon as we can do this, the horse's can go into their new home.
We are hoping before next Autumn, we can get power and water too the shed, so it will be much easier to do the chores. But right now the funds are tapped out.
Slowly we are getting the place set up nicely for both the humans and animals. ;O)
Image Kind had a 40% off sale on and I wanted to check the quality of their prints, since I haven't done that in awhile. Do miss the lush green of the old farm, so I love having this on the Wall. It is called, "Time Lost". Fitting I think. I also bought the panoramic of Mt St Helens I captured and that came out, very, very well. Will try to get a photo of it soon as DH has his stuff off the mantel.
This morning I decided to play with my slowly dying camera. Its frustrating me no end and wish Santa would bring me another one, one that works very well, isn't broken and able to do what I want. But until that happens....
This is one of the photos I took, that I liked. The other is on my Art page if anyone wants to take a look.
Family has been staying busy. Not sure what we are going to do over the Holidays. Most likely continuing to work on the new place. But we will see.
It is however, wonderful to have the family all together again!! VBG
Hated parting with the money for a new roof but as you can see, it needed to be done. Yes, that is indeed a hole in the roof... and mold.
This is what happens when people use a contractor, that doesn't care about the quality of his work, or even doing the work correctly.
Luckily, we found a good general contractor that takes pride in his work, to repair all the issues with the house. So if you need a good Contractor in Caroline County, VA, let me know. Will give you his contact information.
