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
