I took my camera to feed today and took some pics of a few things we could not do without during these cold winter days, when the most important job is feeding the stock.
Most important is the hay grapple. This is a new tool this fall and it may be the most handy piece of equipment we have ever purchased. The gapple picks up the 120lb-140lb hay bales( 4-6 of them at a time) so we don't have to wrestle them by hand. As i weigh about the same amount as the heavy bales i look like a monkey f.. a football when i have to hand load them. Not fun.
We have to use livestock guardian dogs(LGD) to keep the coyotes from eating the sheep. This is Ella.
