You have the before pic, so put in the after pic to show us what you've done!
john, are you still using any wind power?
Time flys when you're having fun!(and wind turbines fly away in West Texas storms...)
Mike....I deleted the comment with the Chinese characters - they pop up from time to time here....DO NOT click on the link with them. It is porn spam.
It just goes to show if you do some work everyday the job gets done. I know how hard you worked on the roof last summer but you have come along way doing it by yourself. When I do my house I plan on a "barn raising". Everyone I know will be there for a week.
JW,After your blog yesterday, I wanted you to have a book that I think will help in training Benito. I think that you should start training with a bridle and lead rope soon. Not unlike us, cattle are lazy, and given an option they don't want to do anything but set in the shade and chew their cud. I prefer your referdgerant in the shade. If they have an option they will not do the work. Make them think that you are the superior being and they don't have that option. That is hard to do when they weigh 2000 lbs. I am sending you a book from amazon.com that should help you. The title is OXEN a Teamsters Guide. Enjoy!
In my comment, I said bridle, and what I should have said was Halter training should begin soon.
Checking in to catch up. I am always impressed with your progress. I look forward to having a cold beer and some warm bread with you one day.
Ok Folks, You heard it from me first! I suggested that John ride Benita to the Grub Shack when he couldn't get out in his PU way back! ;)
You've been working real hard, Mr. Wells. I bet you'll be glad when this phase is done :)
Congrats on all you've accomplished over the last 2 years!
