Farm Truck !

Today i purchased a dump truck for the farm. I saw this and had to have it , the price was right too! It's a 1951 Willys dump truck and everything works! It was a stake body converted into a dump. It's got a 302 , 3 speed stick, 4wheel drive, it will go thru anything and the paint job is cool.

Check out the pictures...

Stormy !

So i have been so busy with the farm . Mostly fencing since Stormy got out twice. When i strung the fence , i had too much distance between. I guess maybe i thought i was raising kangaroos not cattle! So i had to lower all the barb wire strands and close them in. Then the one day i attempted to moved them to my other field, they bolted. I opened the gate and had grain with me , i figured they would follow me, not !They walked like 3/4 of a mile up the hollow and i followed . Katie called my buddy Gary , he came down and we all worked together to get them home. Since this is," my first rodeo", i owe everything to Gary. Since i wanted to start raising cattle he stepped in and mentored me. Thanks buddy, your the best! Then thanks to my loving wife , she has helped me get the calf back in. Don't try farming by yourself, you need help, lots of help! My latest project is fencing in the lower end by the pond. Knowing the placement of the strains, sure makes me feel better!
