    Time for a new trailer

    I have a 2015 Wilson that I bought new after pulling a steel trailer for 28 years. Looking at other brands of used trailers and talking to Wilson owners convinced me to buy the Wilson. I ordered mine with a flat floor because I wanted to put mats in it. The door latch doesn't wrap around the...

    THOUGHTS ON WIND ENERGY by Steve Moreland, June 12, 2016

    Good post Soapweed. What a waste of taxpayer dollars, power companies invest in them only because of the subsidies. They have to have backup power for when the wind doesn't blow just as we have to for our stock water windmills. I wouldn't want them on my place or my neighbors.

    If the world were perfect, it wouldn’t be....

    Sounds a little high to me. How long did it take them to do the job? The well service I use would have that done in about an hour. Adding a foot valve is new to me since the cylinder already has one. I usually don't replace cylinders unless they are damaged and replacing leathers won't fix them.

    I use either net wrap or plastic twine depending on the type of hay. I prefer the polypropylene twine because it lasts longer and is easier to get off the bales. I like net wrap for barley hay. I pull it all and put it in the burn pile.

    Stock trailers

    I really like the 24' Wilson I traded for this year. I got it with the flat floor option so I could put mats in it to make it better to haul horses. Another nice feature on the Wilson is the slam catch on the back gate, makes it easy to get the lever latch closed on a full load of cattle. All...

    I was down in that area for the first time over the 4th of July. My wife's aunt and uncle ranch south of Tensleep. Interesting country with lots of history.

    I had a JD 530 for 25 years and moved up to a JD 568 last year. The 568 will handle way more hay than the 530. I haven't had any problems baling light hay, as little as half a bale an acre. I run throttled down a little most of the time.

    My journal entry for Thursday, June 13, 1968

    The term is used here too. Mostly I use a big rock to tie the fence down to. A lot of places around here the soil type will eat up the wire on a dug in dead man in a couple of years. I have a few let downs in my fence too.

    Branding Etiquette

    I usually cut at the brandings I go to along with a little roping. I try to let all the ropers rope at my brandings, I'll rope a little if I have a new horse that hasn't been roped on much so he'll be ready to use at others brandings.

    Bundy Ranch

    I wonder if there previous law that requires them to coordinate with local law? Would take a lot more digging into the law to find out.
