I’m retired. I do work, however. I own my own place and host cattle, do odd jobs around others places – just to keep my hand in the water, so to speak. I stay reasonably busy.
I own my equipment. Tractor, trucks, trailers, etc., all bought and paid for.
Then I read this article and found out there are certain things I have done that are illegal, some things I didn’t know my equipment might be able to do, and all of it pissed me off.
I’ll let you read Bob’s article.
The North fence got fixed. We finally had to wear hip waders to get into the creek. Took about twenty minutes, taking our time to bridge the gap. It actually took longer to assemble the materials then it did doing the deed.
The calves are now resting in the shade, in tall grass, and settling in well.
Renter finally admitted that it is the owners responsibility to purchase the materials, and the renter’s to fix the damn fence. Both of us are hard headed enough to make useless points by being obstinate.
Feed bunkers are up, plenty of water in the creek for now, the pump is operational and I’ll get the trough up within a week or so.
All’s well so far.
Except for not being able to receive illegal music down loads on my John Deere tractor – mostly, I think, because I don’t own a John Deere.
Still, the idea pleases me and I speculate. Then there are the trucks. Umm? Just wondering.
