I'll get some more pics of Bobcat's "tree shear package".

Yes "mooving" was on purpose. The little gals were heading to another ranch next week for breeding.

One of the creepiest things about this job other than that they were all laying next to each other was that none of them had eyes.

You really do have some "scary" looking trees and brush, and the rocks, yikes!
A CTL would be in hell there.

There are so many sharp pieces of flint and limestone that my hulk tires are constantly cut up and chunks are missing. The cedar branches get hard and when they are pointy will pop a hole in a hydro line or blow a tire. The trees grow like that..thick, up to about 20" at the base, and just plain hairy.The tall straight ones we trim up. The bushy ones are usually cut out to make room for cattle or goats. This is rough country. We don't have the boulders in the fields like GR posted a year or so ago but we have a lot of little annoying rocks up to football sized and some bigger that dozers have pulled up over the years of clearing cedar. If I was 10 years younger I'd be pricing a rock eater but there is only so much time in a day when you got kids and a ranch to work.

That brings back allot of old memories when I was about 13 and 14 hauling off dead hogs in the bucket of a front end loader tractor or rapping a chain around there legs and hauling them off to the bone pile. I learned allot working on a 2400 head hog operation. We use to disk the baby pigs in.

well that brings back great memories of the CPRail calling me out to remove three horses from the tracks near Deroche that got on the tracks and were run down. There were horse parts for over half a kilometer. I thumbed them off the tracks on the way down and ran down the side and clammed them up on the way back. Quite the mess.

Reminds me of a story my uncle told me that when he was a kid (he's now 52 BTW) he found a dead cow in the field next to my grandpa's house. But the interesting part is that the cow's genitals were cut out, but not just any old cut off, it was like really clean cut like it had been cut off by a laser. Thats just weird. How would you explain that? He thinks it could possibly be Aliens (me and him believe that)

Down here in South Texas we have Illegal Aliens but they don't carry lasers.
