    New Year's Resolutions

    I am not one for partaking of this tradition usually. This coming year, I am making a few resolutions that WILL be made this coming season.

    1. Each and every piece of firewood will be split and stacked before deer season starts (shotgun).

    2. Each barn will have a heated water trough inside of it.

    3. The cows will have a covered feeder that will hold a minimum of 6 round bales of hay.

    4. I will have a truck with a snow plow or a heat houser on my Oliver.

    Can you tell I am tired of the hip deep snow that I have dealt with all day?
    Can you tell I am tired of carrying buckets of water to the ponies?
    Can you tell I am dreading putting a round bale in for the cows tomorrow?

    Snow drifts cover the propane tank and picket fence out in the side and front yard. Talk later, be warm and safe everyone. So what motivates your resolutions and what are they???

    God and family, the rest is icing on the cake. I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place!

    So Jonathan
    I'm getting the feeling you don't like hip deep snow.
    Or being out in the cold all day plowing it.
    It could be worse You could be on fire.
    Stupid hurts.

    I bet if you had a tractor like this one that has a cab, heat, 4WD and all it needs is a plow it would move ALL sorts of snow
