Yep, better be careful. If they are young it maybe their way of saying I want it but I need a few more days to scrape up 500 bucks


I'm wanting to believe its the latter. They are not young kids. They're certainly thirties or more. The vehicle they currently drive isn't theirs, they are kind-of the "hard luck" type. She works cleaning, he's helping a "neighbor" with haying & misc. odds and ends. With any luck they'll be here this evening, try it-buy it-drive it away. :)

The next hurdle will be the "old" tractor.

BTW ------ good to see you here M- dash. :)



Good luck. and Thank you, Its less stressful without all the DRAMA.

It was hotter than I would prefer to be weaning calves today but we did it anyway. My son is turning into real help and just in time as somewhere along the way I got to old to do it all by myself. Luckily the small rip in the crotch of my jeans turned into a big rip as I was grateful for the added ventilation by the time we got done. :lol2:

I was told at our GCA meeting last night that 1" hail will destroy a beautiful crop of soybeans. Some of our friends had rough weather yesterday afternoon.

Getting ready to plant wheat, but grain trailer somehow got two punctured tires, so a small setback. The boys divided up the pastures among themselves and took salt and mineral to the cows today. A pallet of mineral doesn't last but a few days, but the cattle are healthy and calves aren't getting sick anywhere. We weaned the calves off first calf heifers 3 days ago, so have some bawlers.

Spent time giving grandson a 4 wheeler ride, and then a ride on my shoulders. He'll be spending the night with us tonight for the first time. We'll see how he likes that.

Moved my cows into a different pasture this morning. It never gets old enjoying the ones that get silly and start shaking their heads and bucking & kicking. A couple of new calves, that were born before ever seeing this field, looked like they were on a big adventure.

I'm back to being dog poor. I bought a started dog and a pup a few months ago. I lost the started dog in a thunderstorm (still not sure what happened but a dead dog is a dead dog) and the pup tried to head off the mail truck and bring it back to me today. I'm back to two old grouchy retired bytches and a crippled houndish type therapy dog.

I have stooped to a level I said I would never. Apparently I'm a hay trader now gotta go get me some of them short ceegars to stick in the corner of my mouth.






Btw I'm a salesman in real life so it's easy to do I just can't take advantage of people. But I sold everything I made off of the gift fields .

Nothing wrong with being a hay trader, especially if you're honest.
