We had a nasty storm come through a bit ago and after it settled down I went to see what all got broke. Besides the usual broken planters and stuff that the wind catches. I was surprised to see Jack the horse where he should not be!

I went through the barn to the paddock where Jack should have been fenced in and it took me a bit to notice the horse shelter







Jack has been enclosed by a electric fence which terminates at both sides of the shelter, well the storm made a new exit for him.

Yes , the wind flipped it right over, Never anchored it as it's portable. Nothing has ever budged it before and it's been there for two years.

Argh!!!!! Don't even talk about tire chains YET! :mad2: I'm sure the last few years up over there have been just like ours not far to your SW... seems like every other day we get dumped on in the winter. One of the larger snowfalls we had last year necessitated having a local construction company come over with a track-style little skid loader and a full-on end loader to help clear the RV dealership out. Our two plow trucks and Ford diesel tractor with a bucket were worthless that time, lol.

my tire chains and wheel weights LIVE on the tractor. I pretty much only use it in the winter for snow removal and firewood harvest. Summer use is an occasional grading the driveway after a torrential rain.

Given my driveway is over a 1000 feet long through the woods, there are times I need to pile snow 15 feet high.

I used a snow chucker for a few years.....having an auger re-tipped is costly and getting new gravel ain't cheap either. My son in law could get me a deal on a 6 foot blower for the Massey BUT......a snow bucket and rear blade is really the way for me to go. Right now I am just waiting for the skeeters to go away

Snap, at anytime of the day if there is not at least a 5 mile an hour breeze, you will have a cloud, and I mean a cloud of skeeters on you. You go into the nearest big town and try to buy insect repellent and there is none to be had.

It's bad!!!
