|It's official! The farm exists! It has a sign!|
It turns out, apparently, that just because the snow plow is attached to the back of the tractor, this does not mean that you have to plow snow in reverse. Thankfully the tractor drives right over the snow and disperses the snow behind it! After living through 2 winters in Syracuse, New York - I suspected there was a technique to snow plowing. I have now confirmed that. And I have also confirmed that I don't get it. I'm capable of plowing the snow. In whatever first path I make. I am not capable to making the path any wider. Shit. Sorta like backing up the horse trailer. I always love when some guy says, "Can you just move it 3 feet to the left?" No. I can park it just about anywhere, once. I cannot, however, move it 3 feet to the left or right once I get there. Nor can I, apparently, move my snow path 3 feet to the left or right. Excellent.
|This represents almost 2 hours of work. Clearly my skills need some improvement!|
When I warmed up a few days later and took a good look at the jumps sitting in my front yard, waiting to be drug around the fields -- I am excited beyond belief! The jumps are absolutely fantastic! Beautifully built and absolutely perfect for how I train -- let the horses learn to hold a line and be quick on their feet at 2'6" long before they have to do it at 3'6". We have a mini corner and narrow tables and rolltops. Now if Tyson can get some banks and ditches built early this spring - I really will be living in "mini-Rolex"!!!! Cannot wait to get the horses out and start jumping these things!!! Winter be gone!
|Narrow houses & rolltops -- plus a bench and table! Heck of a sight to see out my bedroom window!|
|Prelim Corner -- at Beginner Novice height! PERFECT!|
|Hi. I'm a Mini Corner. I'm sittin' in a field. Somebody, please jump me!!! Please!!|
