It was about 45* today so I took advantage and I used the JD 317 and Johnny Bucket to scrape about an inch of ice from in front of the garage.

Cleaned out chicken and goat stalls last night, sorry no pics. Filled the dump bucket and the 10 cu ft trailer then headed to back of field to dump on compost pile. Much easier than a wheel barrow or getting truck muddy back there.

Fired up the Massey for the first time in weeks.  We had a "Southern Snowstorm", ie, just about enough to cover the grass, leave the roads covered in ice, and then melt away before the next night.  So, no plowing.  Instead, I pulled my two youngest kids around over the snow/grass mix with the Massey.  Great Fun!

We also went out while it was actually snowing last night and "made a snowman".

Used the HDT1000 to get my 'stuck' truck out of the side yard.  First thing I had to do was get the EK7 off of the trailer.

 

100_4508.JPG 100_4507.JPG
 
The HDT has a 3-pt with an A frame on it that has a sleeve hitch adapter on one side and a towing tab on the other.  It was setup for the sleeve hitch use, so I had to take it off and reverse it.  I then put a 2" ball in the tow tab.
 
Since the trailer was so low, I backed the HDT up to the side near the front, lowered the hitch enough to just get under the side.  Unlatched the trailer hitch, and the 3-pt lifted it up with ease.  I put some extra planks under the jack foot to make sure that it doesn't sink.
 
Then with my neighbor in the truck, hitched a tow strap to it and used the HDT to 'help' it out.
 
I was going to move the trailer, but I think I'll wait for the ground to freeze before I do that.  I've put enough ruts there for now  :D :D :D

I hauled a load of wood from my shed to the house with my JD214 and trailer, so I could start a fire in the Fireplace. Any excuse is a good one.

11 degrees this Groundhog Day.  The crazies at nearby Gobblers Knob included my Aunt and Cousin.  I skipped it again, if you see one rodent predict the weather, you have seen them all.

 

When it warmed up to 13 degrees, I started up the Cub Cadet 147 to do some farm chores.  It started pretty well, considering the cold.  I cleaned out the horse manure from the shed, at least the manure that wasn't frozen to the ground.  The manure went into the compost pile, and a cart load of sawdust from the neighbor's saw mill.  Another load went into the horses' shed.  Then I went back to the mill and got a load of slab wood for the fire.

 

I get a lot of use from this cart.  It is 3' wide, 4' long, and heavy duty.  I need to replace the gate hinges, since they are frozen not quite closed.

Hooked the trailer up to the Massey 12G and drove all my kids around and over to a friends house, where we pulled her trampoline out of the trees where the recent storms had tossed it.  Drove around some more then dropped the trailer next to the trash cans, let my son drive the tractor and put it away while I hooked the trailer up to the truck to haul trash away.

Decided homework could wait a while today.  After an oil change, I fired up the Massey 12 and attached the disk.  Weeds were starting to grow in the garden and needed to be knocked down.  Turf tires don't turn very well on loose dirt, I really need to pick a gardening tractor and put some rib tires on it.  Someday!

Since it's been sub freezing for about a week, I decided to move the stuck trailer from 7 posts back.

 

I fired up the HDT1000 and moved it to a better spot. Took a bit of tugging and rocking as the trailer wheels were frozen in a bit of a depression, but in the end it came out.

 

Took the time to swap sides of the A frame on the 3-pt as well so I could put the Hang-N-Haul on it.  If I can't get the 1886FL running tomorrow, I'll be using that to move an attachment that I'm holding for someone when they pick it up this weekend
