Your story is a very familiar one in these tough economic times. Things haven't been easy for a lot of people as this recession progresses. It's hard to have faith, but I do believe that things such as this do make you stronger. Thanks for your comment and Glad to have you reading! Catherine,

I have been looking for a job with either children to care for or animals. Horses, dogs, ponies,chickens,cats,sheep etc. I raised 4 kids the last one is just starting college. We used to have land, abeautiful Morton barn with horse stalls, pony stalls and a heated tack stall. My dreams were coming true. Then we were suddenly hit with expensive health problems and we lost every thing,We had to move to a small house in town. Some way I will figure out how to work on my dreams again.

Also, it is going to take a lot more HP than you think when you start moving litter. I tried it the first year with my 4110 and wound up contracting it out to a crew with the proper equipment. Kevin, The spikes will go when all of the rest go. Joel,

You wrote awhile back about getting some young roosters (spikes) in to help with the fertility of the flock. When you move out the older hens and roosters will the spikes stay or will they be moved out with the rest of the flock? I know that it might be difficult to know which were the older roosters and which were the younger ones, especially if they are about the same size now. I was also wondering if you were going to get a permeanantly mounted backhoe on your new tractor, or if you were going to get one of the three point mount attachments that has a seperate oil resevoir and pump (run off of the PTO)? I understand that on the smaller tractors the 3pt attachment type is better, if the tractor isn't set up at the factory for a high demand hydralic attachment. Take care and have a great weekend!

And yeah i know! My summer seemed so short. But at least I didn't have to go back to college! We're (my mom and i) freezing sweet corn as fast as we can for winter. We've done probably 600 ears worth. But it is going the wrong way fast...so now my chickens are starting to eat very ripe sweet corn. And I have to say it is depressing to look at how close winter is. My gelding and the cattle are growing out their coats big time. We had a cute heifer born and she's got a full winter cover. Guess it is time to start breaking out the sweatshirts and insulated coveralls! Hey of course I am still reading. And yeah i know! My summer seemed so short.
