HOT!

Postby Faster horses » Sun Jul 08, 2018 9:14 am

It is really hot here at the foot of the Big Horn mountains!!!!!! I checked and Eager AZ is cooler than we are!!!! Both day and night!!!
Don't like this heat, but it's good haying weather....if you don't break down. :( Of course our breakdowns come on Saturday and the
dealership in town doesn't have the part. So we made a parts run to Billings, picked up some parts for them while we were there.
On the way home, we saw a long, long coal train. 2 engines pulling, 2 pushing. Haven't seen that in awhile. Thank you Trump for allowing us to use our natural resources as the Lord intended.

I did manage to get a couple of pictures with my phone, not good ones, but what the heck. I'll share them:
I think I wish I had gotten a more expensive camera so the pictures would be better quality.
I'm glad we can post pictures on here again!!

Got what I need to fix one machine except I can't get a broken bolt out.

Belt that runs the net wrap broke on one of the balers. Should have had one on hand, but nope.

Radiator hose on rake tractor here today. Net roller and hydraulic leak yesterday. We are darn lucky to have a Sunday parts man. We try not to abuse that privelege. We have ten to twenty of those trains thru here daily, FH, but I'm sure being east of Wyoming has a lot to do with that.

Add no lights on one rake tractor, cab power issues on square baler tractor, and a busted shaft on the round baler. Just a fun evening...

It was hot today then Hail hit, what a mess, every roof in the yard is beat, windshields smashed, trucks dented up. Had bulls break out and don't know where half of them are. Some dry cows broke out some on hiway. Never seen water run through our yard like tonight,rivers everywhere, the hills look washed.
Guess we are calling insurance agent in the morning. Just about everything sitting outside is damaged.

Oh, Big Muddy, SO SORRY! :cry2: That makes our whining look pitiful in comparison. :(
Hope you find your bulls and cows. If we were closer, we would help.

Sorry to hear that. Happened recently to some friends. They found lots of dead fawns and birds, cattle sore and went through fences, just bad.
