Date Night

On Friday Night, when the air had cooled down a bit we worked with Nickel spreading manure.
Ok, it was not exactly "date night" romantic but it was fun.
When you have big draft horses like Nickel, it is a pleasure to work with them. Like people draft horses grow prematurely old and fat if they do not have a job to do.

Bob has been working more, and more with Nickel and he is really developing in size and shape.

The addition of our "new to us" Pioneer cart allows us more draft horse options with project that previously required a tractor.

Spreading the manure in the back pasture, really generates new growth.

We worked almost till sun set, then the mosquitoes became intolerable. It takes me longer to fill the manure spreader with the tractor then it takes Nickel and Bob to empty it, but together we made quick work of the pile.
