Chore days on my own just became a little easier thanks to one rather remarkable individual.
Allen never ceases to amaze me with his understanding of the workings of anything mechanical or structural, coupled with the talents to build them. I have little understanding of how his mind sorts such things out but I’m grateful that I get to see his mind create and his hands go to work.
This week, among other building tasks, he decided to weld a simple round bale un-roller for use behind the Ranger.
We tried it out yesterday and after a little modification it was ready to go again today. While some forking will still be required this should cut the physical labour in half. I'm very pleased with this!
Notice there are no sheep coming to eat the newly unrolled feed. That’s because they’ve gone off grazing, which most of them do as a first choice.
And then there are always some individuals who prefer to eat at their own bale, no matter how easy we make it for them otherwise.
