I will run outside and take a picture of how it looks here in comparison. Hope I can remember how to get the picture from my camera to ranchers.net.

You place looks nice and tidy. And I love the way your house sets in there. Already saw the inside; it's a nice comfy place to hang your hat.
Lucky you!

Nice pictures and nice place, Haymaker. How far are you from Dallas? When I was down there a couple weeks ago it was pretty doggone dry, even though it did rain hard one day while we were there.

Faster Horses - it looks just about the same out my window. Aren't we glad we didn't get what the folks east of the river here in the Dakotas got?

I love seeing the different parts of the country - - - - it was in the low 60's today - - - we had 4'" of snow the day befor Thanksgiving but it was gone by mid afternoon and back to mud.

I'm feeding hay to keep the cows out of the mud. I will turn them out on some stock piled grass when it drys or freezes.

I know I spoil my girls but I concreted the feeding area about 30 years ago and I feel that with the hay savings and the stress off the cows the concrete has paid for its self.

I used to keep moving the bale feeders and rutting the ground - - - the area where we fed would not produce good pasture later - - - wear and tear on the equipment ( tractors - feeders - etc )

I placed the concrete on a south facing hill and sloped the concrete 1/2 inch per foot - - - very easy cleanup and keeps dry - - - I have a loafing shed at the top and I have to lay 2X8s across the opening in the winter to keep manure inside. It forms a 3 to 4 inch dry pack they seem to love to lay on. I keep the outside area cleaned- - - it only takes about thirty minutes a week.

Haymaker,
Yeap, That's the Hill Country.
Looks like you got you a litter of piglets runnin in yer oat/rye(?) patch. Noticed today that they've been back out on the backside of our place and have rooted up a bunch more. Them's liveoak trees aint they? keep their leaves year round, we have a few of them here, but not near as many as you do.
Enjoyed the "ride home"
And looks like you got one that likes to climb up in her dinner plate to eat hay. HeHe
