Distraction 101

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

We had snow yesterday and need to scrape our driveway.  Last winter we didn’t have a means to do this and had to rely on our neighbors.  We purchased a used Kubota and a scraper blade last year and are self-sufficient now.  In order to get the tractor out of the barn then out of the pasture without running over a curious goat or allowing a guardian dog to run out, it’s just 3 easy steps:

1. Put a fresh bale of hay in the feeder.  It keeps the ruminants busy fighting over ‘fresh’ food.  Never mind there was perfectly good hay already in the feeder…

2. Call the guardians away from the pasture gate and feed them dog biscuits. They are absolute suckers for treats.

3. Open the gate and drive the tractor out as fast as you can.

Obviously, this is a two person job.  It’s one we’ve gotten very good at.
