It sure ain't getting wasted in the mud that way
My thoughts only, don't bet the farm on them. KT

Would be my luck it would have rolled off and killed the one on the back.....

It's not unloaded because of the lack of a tractor. It hardly moved when I tried rolling it off and my straps were just not long enough when I tried using the truck to drag it off. No one has been able to run me out to the farm so I can get the tractor.

That roll is about like it's nailed down. Ain't going anywhere without machinery.

I see a tree (of sorts). As long as there's a tree it will come off.....if you bring along a rope.

Thought of that and if it weren't a dead black locust I might have come up with a long enough rope/strap to do it. Those calves won't hardly go near that thing as it is. It's on my BIL's side and he keeps saying he'll get it down and hauled off. Just afraid of ending up with some crippled calves if I tied off to that. Just need a ride to the farm and that'll happen this afternoon. May also push that tree down too.

We have the plague (Black Locust) here too. I kill them every time I see one. Keeping them from getting established.

First thing I was going to do but my straps weren't long enough. It all good today.
