    It's not that bad on this side of the state but give it a week. The pond is getting smaller everyday.

    Nice Hereford Boss, Reminds me of Pete, the Hereford bull that I used to ride back in 1966 when I was milking Jersey cows. He would come in the house if you let him!

    Heifers on water from well for a while. Did some tractor cleaning to get rid of all dirt they had walked into it. Pricing for new well is around $8500 and 6 weeks out. I can't water garden or do much of anything extra for fear of running it dry. Had new family of 6 move in across the highway from me into their grandparents house last year and I can tell the extra water usage from them. My well is not super deep and too old to re-drill.

    Might be a good name. I named one psycho sid when he was young. He grew right into his name. Tried to tip my hay tractor and chased me under it one day. He made many many pounds of hamburger the following day

    I'm a little worried that my Angus bull is gonna get wild. Sometimes he acts a little odd.

    Yeah. Mine was that way. Mellow as could be one day. Then slowly started acting different. I was the only one who went near him after he started acting strange. Strange like I could have rubbed his head then split second later completely evil. Then back to mellow. Just watch him is all I’m getting at. Seems as they get around prime age they either chill or go nuts.

    I watch him like a hawk. No one walks in the field with him either. Always ride in.....and ride out.

    With as many hours as it has & as good as it looks they may have replaced the fenders. The plastic Deere uses isn't very durable. Is the windshield glass or lexan?

    My grandma had a Holstein bull chase her in the house. Took a shotgun to get him off the front porch.


    That sucks. The river is 1/2 mile away from this beef herd. I'll have them next to it & be pumping water as soon as i get time to run a hot wire around the border of that field.

    The old folks told me, when I was little , leave the bulls, buck sheep and boars alone. The bulls might get you down and stomp your guts out, bucks break your back,but the boars will get you down and probably eat you!

    My old man handed me an axe handle and told me to get over that fence to cut the string off the bale...

    I survived, but I wouldn't recommend it.

    Worked with a guy years ago at one of the sale barns. He stopped the sale,dropped his bibs showed us guys, where a boar bit him years ago . He had a scar to the bone the size of a mans fist, never went in with one without a pipe after that. Years ago we had break every boars nose before they went on the truck . Wish I had a dollar for every one now!

    Lexan, and yes the fenders have been replaced when they put the fender guards on the front of the machine.
