    Freezing Rain and ice

    Send us all the snow and ice you don't want. We haven't had any rain since Oct, the temp yesterday was in the 70's, 40 mph wind and grass fires finally got us. We were damn lucky not to lose any of the buildings, tractors or vehicles. We didn't have time to move all the equipment so the fire...

    Favourite season

    You can't beat the fall. I used to live in Nebraska. Nothing more pleasant than working on the sunny side of the barn and listing to Husker football games.

    Bucking horse

    Send the horse to the local rodeo stock contractor and throw him in the string of saddle broncs. If he keeps bucking he found himself a home. If he quits, there is a good chance he has the bucking out of his system.

    corriente saddles

    Tworopes- Initially, that may sound a little pricey, but first time you get one of those cheap saddles wet and the skirts start rolling up you'll realize there is more to a saddle than price.

    corriente saddles

    Tworopes - you are in the middle of good saddle makers. Run over to Big Bend Saddlery in Alpine. They build as good a saddle as can be made.

    How to Find a Wife?

    You should advise any young man planning to marry to buy his prospect an olive green electric can opener as a gift. This prepares the prospective bride for the many disappointments they will have in the future. That was my wife's first Christmas present from me over 25 years ago and the one...

    kinda funny?

    Haymaker - Reminds me of some friends of mine sitting around watching a horse race on TV and it wasn't long they were making bets. The guy that won all the money was the only one in the group that knew this race was a re-run from the week before. He went ahead and took the money.

    The Accident

    Sash - no question about it. Two bored casino dealers were standing around the crap table when a very attractive woman arrived and wanted to bet $20,000 on a single roll of the dice. The dealers took their position for this bet when the woman said she feels luckier when she gambles in the nude...

    New Here, need help with a NH 648 baler

    3Words - You may be right, but this equipment only breaks down or needs parts when you are using it. Our closest Vermeer dealer is about 100 miles away, too far to run for parts. We used a new JD for awhile last year. I think that will be my next baler.

    New Here, need help with a NH 648 baler

    Maple Leaf - try leaving the wind guard off in straw, it should work. Once you take it off you won't ever put it back on until you trade in the baler. Another thing I found that helps start the bale. When you open the tailgate you will see a bottom roller w/ 4 ribs running the length of the...

    New Here, need help with a NH 648 baler

    Maple Leaf - If you use net try running w/out the windguard. NH needs to redesign the placement of the little guide wheels on the pickup. On corners, in long grass, the wheels restrict the grass from moving properly and it overloads the augers. Taking the windguard off helps, plus you can...
