♪ ♫ ♩ ♬ I think my tractor's sexy! LOL ♪ ♫ ♩ ♬
Rick and I purchased our first tractor last night. It is a compact YanMar (see above). We are getting older, are really busy, and digging and doing everything by hand just isn't feasible anymore. Hiring every job out gets expensive and of course, you always have to wait. So, we went ahead and made the purchase. Financing tractors is really good right now, most dealers have 0% interest (in case you are in the market). The YanMar was on sale and at 0%...you just cannot beat that! I still need to get a brush hog and perhaps a few other implements, not sure yet.
Nothing going on on the barn build at the moment. We are still in a holding pattern waiting for back-ordered materials. I did find a few more photos on Rick's cell phone (see below). We plan to polyurethane the wood before using the facility so we have a lot of work to do once the build is complete! We are still waiting for an electricity and plumbing plan and estimate and I've not finalized anything with the sign yet.
If you were wondering, I've also not had any time to play horsey! It is just going to be one of those years I guess. I have been swamped with work, the projects, and well, time, never enough....maybe today, I'll at least sit on Fosse and feed him cookies! HEHE
Have a lovely weekend folks, more later!
