Most Valuable Farm Hand
I would be lost without my wheelbarrels. I have 2 that have held up pretty well for the last 6 or 7 years. They do not get left out in the rain or sun. I have had to put a new stand on my black one and this one needs new supports on the front. I only have 4.5 acres that usually have at least 20 horses housed in the barns and pastures. It is so much easier to feed with them rather then something with a motor. I Gator would be nice, the gates would be a pain. Of course all the horses think the hay in the barrel is better. They follow me to the gate then go back to the feeders. I have 23 stalls that are usually full in the winter. My friends use them for their horses in training. My horses stay outside, they would rather be out then in a stall. I have run ins for them and they only use them in severe weather. I keep blankets on the show horses and broodmares. When the snow gets to deep I switch to a sled. What's your favorite farm hand? Significant others don't count!
