Looking good! That sod is laying over pretty nice.

Ya know, if diesel keeps going nuts we all might be in the market for a couple of teams to farm and feed with! :shock: I love the pictures and hope ya continue to show us what your up to. Thanks a bunch! :D My wife was wondering how many acres you plow and how long it takes. Thanks again!

Thank's all :) I sure enjoy viewing the picture's and stories on rancher's and it's nice to contribute!

H this is at a neigbor's annual little get together and they are pretty much just plowing for fun, and practice for the Wanham plowing match. My brother is a very accomplished teamster and has plowed 15 - 20 acre's at home some year's with 6 up and a 2 bottom sulky plow. I'll have to ask him how many acre's he get's done in a good day?

You would think there would be some economical benefit in fuel saving's, or tourist attraction, or selling a broke team every few year's..........or something!! but the reality is with feed, yardage, hoofcare, replacement due to injury or age (trainning) it just isn't a profitable venture:(
On the other hand to watch his kid's (and mine on occasion) take an interest in something other than rolling pickup's on Sat. night is priceless!!

Take care

Those pictures are bittersweet to me.. My dad use to feed with a six horse team.. I would ride behind the hains.. take a grab with both hands and away to the barn we would go..
