No regrets, So far we have kept them all and are making good money from them all.

If i had a chance to buy a company out every year like i did this one i would do it with no hesitations year after year.

Jeep fenders fade to that dull gray so easily, I use a product called Ice on flares for my Tacoma, it seems to keep them a little bit shinier than usual.

So about a month ago i showed some pics of a 17 acre horse farm that i mow, Well the farm has been forsale, and the owners told the reality company to try and find a cheaper company then myself to mow the property. So they found some hacks who claimed they would mow it for $250 cheaper then we did and do some extra work for the same $250.

So the reality company decided to give them a shot, needless to say it took the morons 3 days to complete the property and it looked absolutely horrible. the reality company saw what it looked like and freaked out and fired the guys on the spot. He called me back and begged us to take the property back. so i said sure no problem.

Anyways, the property haden't been mowed for almost a month, and the grass was about 10 inches high 12 in some spots. So here is a pic of the first passes on the front field showing how high and crappy it looked. You can see how clumpy and how much grass it cut off on the left side.

And here are the final pics after a ton of work. and some bagging.
