This has been a tough winter, and especially the last 10 days or so of frozen he77 on earth. It was rough but we have had it much better than a lot. Our power didn't go out just flickered a few times one night. Thousands in our county lost electricity for up to a week. One of the benefits of living almost across the road from the electric co op I reckon. Our 4wd tractor is broke down and the loader tractor won't go in much mud or snow, so I have had to rely on the little 3000 Ford to get hay out, which we have had to man handle once through the gates because of the ice. This morning, the sun was out and saw some robins hopping around in the yard. The snow and ice is leaving and temperature in the 50's today. I was able to drive the hay out to my feeding areas this morning, it was a muddy mess but has been that most of the winter.

Been pretty rough here but doing better than most. Been without water and electric for 12 days now.
Biggest obstacle has been cutting trees off fences and repairing fence.

Ball joint on steering cylinder of my TN65 wore out and fail out of steering. Had to stick it back in the hole, tie it down with baleing wire and hay twine until I can get time to go get parts.

Had to switch hay forks over to another tractor at a different location to set hay out.

So this morning when i went to feed. My bull somehow had gotten inside one of the hay rings scooted it 200 yards with him in it and was laying down chewing his cude. Luckily he wasn't hurt. Was able to flip the hay ring over and off of him before he could rock his self to get up.

Had to use the broke tractor to scoot round bales out to the ring feeders because the hay forks were at a different place.

Anymore if something isn't wrong or happening. Things don't seem right Lol !!
