Over the past few days many helpful people in our lives showed up to work hard, get dirty and in return, go home tired. A BIG THANKS to my Dad for coming all the way up from Victoria for a few days, our Friend Foster from the Birds and the Beans farm down the road and to all of the machinery that kept us on our feet. Who want to sit all day on a machine that works consistently anyways? Bor-ring. Hopefully these helpful, happy people at least enjoyed a beer and felt some satisfaction in being a part of a huge job on our farm: packin' heat... into the cut grass, that will ferment, and then turn into delicious silage (feed) for the cows throughout the winter. The cows will surely be appreciative and we most certainly are so grateful right now and forever for your help and encouragement in a brand new (to us) and humongous project. I for one, am happy to have 'Skid Steer Extraordinaire' on my resume now. Maybe an exaggeration of skill, but not of my new machinist ego. I decided to document the whole thing in this photographic 'little toy' style since this type of adventure has been Etienne's dream since he was playing with little toy tractors twenty something years ago in his parents' garden.
