    The WHA (Wheel Horse Addicted) are a great bunch. If you find a WHA gal, Hoo-Rah! Love those Horses and they'll love you back. And of course, "Red is for the blood we shed!"

    Look what followed me home!

    Excellent! Two Stallions! You two made out great! Two Horses moving to excellent homes too!

    Today’s the day!

    Great pickup! WOW! What a haul!
  4. Turned earth years ago, similar setup. Great deal you found! Very nice! Pushed a lot of wet white cold junque too! My sons took over, their first Horse. I made the front bumper to hang weights, kept the Horse down while turning the gardens. Down boy!

    Piece of cake protect, half hour. I found the Dial-A-Height on eBay, $20. Go for it!

    Another bit of bad luck...

    Sorry to hear 'bout your "rotten" luck. Was up Rt 380 today. Roads were fine but lots of snow still on the road shoulders, heavy junque, cold too.
  8. I see you said that you grew up on eastern Long Island. Me too and I'm still here! Where about did you live?

    Tractor Lift

    Great setup! I'm going to get one, I'm 71+ and bending working low 'bout ready to start wearing knee pads along with my headlamp. That's one reason I hired a crew.

    Synthetic oil?

    Used to deliver 80w90 Mobil I synthetic gear lube to UPS. Their system database proved 3 times the life of gear boxes on their trucks. Engines used non-synthetic oils.

    Synthetic oil?

    30w unless a long cold spell, then 10w30 always conventional. I'm with TheTool Crib on this subject, "never synthetic". Particularly if you are following a PM (preventative maintenance) schedule. Why spend the extra loot? At Camp Lejeune motor pool we had 30w Texaco, if you preferred we had 30w Texaco, for combat vehicles we used 30w Texaco. On extra night duty we invented Jiffy Lube! We used 30w Texaco! Bring your car and a six pack, oil change, high tech 30w Texaco! With three grandsons, our PM schedule runs double time! Keeps the brats boys busy doing something nice worthwhile. Better than playing Nintendo games, I think.

    Removing the Mule Drive

    When a grunt (USMC) was stationed in Millington, TN, mid-sixties, a few months then back to Lejeune. Weekends in Arkansas were great! Catfish tails and French fries, 99 cents.

    Amish hard apple cider is healthy too.
  14. And I love conch fritters too. Grew up on Eastern Long Island, love the ocean and, could push sand dunes with any Horse!
  15. Looked at my blades long ago and it appears two additional holes would be OK. Just never got around to drilling. Plow often if a lot of snow is forecast. Push the wet white cold junque well out of the way make room for all snow, and then some. Maybe just move to Key West?
