I got some options that added a little to the price so I'm sure you could get it down a little. Now I'm looking for a horse trailer for Mattie, but I'm planning to keep the utility trailer for hauling square hay. Thanks for reading and for the comment! Robert, Thanks for comment! I love the 3316 HST. I started looking at the 3015 and watched it evolve to the 3215 then the 3316 before finally pulling the trigger. NO REGRETS! You planning on buying day old chicks or trying to find pullets? I used to love raising the day old chicks. Most of the time we bought ours from Murray McMurray Hatchery. I hear the Sierras are beautiful. You should start a flickr page so we can all see some pics from out there. Strangely enough it has always been my dream to live on a true homestead somewhere in the middle of nowhere! Not sure how I ended up farming, but I like it too. Maybe when I retire I'll start a homestead somewhere. Check back soon! Mike,

Stumbled on it at the Mahindra website while looking for implements for our 3015 HST. We\'re in the California Sierra Nevada foothills and working a 20 acre former sheep-ranch for the last 7 years. Currently we only have 4 dogs, two cats and 3 horses... but the tractor has been invaluable for digging fence-posts, leveling some of the hilly terrain, and pulling trailer loads of firewood. HOPING to get some chickens started this spring. Hope your Mrs feels better and the kids keep doing well. A great blog !

It was really nice to read the way you honored your grandparents. My grandpa was the one who made me catch the farming bug with his stories of growing up on the farm when I was a kid. Keep blogging and telling those those farm stories. People are hungry for them. I am enjoying your posts. It was really nice to read the way you honored your grandparents.

Lots has changed in Pine Knot as years go by, but then again not so much. Seems the faces change, but other than houses popping up there's still not much here. Your great aunt Velma also happens to be my grandmother. The picture in the post is of her and Virgil (papaw) the day they married. Yes Susan and Julie are teaching still, but I expect Susan to retire soon. These chickens are strictly for hatching eggs. Cobb has a hatchery in Monticello and the eggs are transported there and hatched or sold all over the world. Please comment often! Jim Wondered if any of the longtime readers had lost me since I took a little break. Glad to know your still reading. Think about it long and hard before you make the leap on the hog barn. Once your in you don't have much choice but keep your nose to the grindstone and make it happen. Keep me posted on how your doing. Thanks for the comment! Jimi Jones,

I was raised in Pine Knot Kentucky, along with my 2 brothers. Your narratives bring me back to a simpler time and remind me how much things have changed. My great aunt Velma Ball taught school for many years in the McCreary County system, as does her daughters now. I don\'t get back much but I miss the beautiful country side. Keep up your posts as they are very informative. My wife is curious as to whether your raising fryers or chickens soley for their eggs? My wife stumbled onto your blog a few years ago.

There's always something new on the farm. Just had 6 baby goats hit the ground this week. All in the middle of a snow storm. Plus Farm 1 got chickens back. 7 eggs today, there will be hundreds by the end of next week. COLD here! Hereford Maid,
