Cleaning the Barn

10 Dec

While the weather was nice on Sunday and since it wasn’t too horribly muddy but still too wet to do a lot of things on the farm, he decided it was a good day to clean out my barn.  He actually got to borrow the skidsteer this time.

He used it to get the manure out of the barn and dump it into the spreader in my field.

It’s a lot smaller than the tractor, but it still fills the barn up pretty good.

Especially when he has to back it out.  I’m glad he’s the one that was driving it.

He managed to get a pretty good load on the spreader.

When he finished cleaning it out, he switched tools from the bucket to the hay tines.

Then he brought in a cornstalk bale.  I cut the wrapping off, and then he shook it loose.

Then he backed up and shook more off.  It worked really  well.

Then the goats decided that their new bedding was really delicious.

Astra even found some corn.

This was a good job to get done before this week’s cold weather.
