Well, I been a workin. I been makin them big roundy lookin hay bales all day.

EIEIO    Posted 06-28-2002 at 15:51:09       [Reply]  [No Email]
You ain't been working you've been slaving. Dennis was explaining to me about how those bales are made - what a job! He was also explaining the theory about internal combustion if you bale the hay when it is wet. I still am not to sure about that one, he tells me stuff and I believe him until I repeat a story of his and eveyone thinks I am ready for the looney bin.
Once we were trying to get a snow shovel for one of our customers for us to engrave - lots of luck in Texas. Anyway Dennis called Sears and when he got off the phone he told me the metal kind was outlawed because it was cracking the streets in the winter. Not two minutes later the phone rings and it was a vendor from Chicago, I proceeded to tell her the story. She said she would immediately tell everyone because they hadn't heard about that. Well I told Dennis, he explained he made the story up. I had to call back the vendor, what a deal.

Someday I will tell the story of how Dennis nearly got me arrested for shoplifting in Krogers. Big mistake.

Ol Dennis and Bob/Ont. are telling it straight. I seen more than one fire caused by baled wet hay. We rolled about 300 5X6s today running two rakes and two balers. Thank God for the cab and air conditioning..

Thought you folks would shop at the PIGGLE WIGGLEY, any how Ei if you could get a bale of that fresh hay one of the guys bought a waggon load of a while back you might be able to cook supper on it tonight. What you meant was SPONTAINOUS COMBUSTION, happens to people too I hear but I haven't seen it yet. Hows the pigs?

Funny you should ask about the pigs, I just happen to have a current picture. Check photo gallery if you've a mind to. They are now five and a half months old. I think they look good but Dennis says they are small for their age. Oh well still have a few more months before I put an apple in their mouth. I just need to figure out what to tell the butcher. Do we smoke, cure or whatever the hams? Also I have to find a link, or maybe someone out there can help about how to have them cut and packaged.

The are a great pair and I enjoy them, not the stink though. I never realized that pigs were are smart as they are. If Pork doesn't want Ham to eat he will sit on the grass I give them and eat what is near him while poor Ham just snorts away. I treat them like pets but I have no problem eating them. They knew right from the getgo that they were special pigs for a special purpose and I figure the better I treat them the better than will taste.

Ei, shouldn't tell you this since you are going to ear your's but check out the story I said before. Just type "pig saves owner" into your search and read a good story. Butcher will ask how you want them cut up and wraped.

Go to the County Extension Office and Pick up the 4-H Pig manuel. Its got a good section on how to cut up the pig. Lots on the care and feeding too. Also give you an ideal how big the pig should be and what age.

Also you don't need hay for spontanious cumbustion. Manure will do it too. Loaded up a bunch of fresh stuff into a pile. About a week later filled a trailer for a guy who lives in town. Darn trailer looked like it was on fire going down the highway.

Kraig thats why pileing manuer is a good way to kill weeds. Don't need to for sheep though, nothing that comes out in those little 44cal nuggets will live, they are good animals for cleaning up weeds.
