    Thought I would make a post of some of the unusual things I've ran over while mowing and see what others have ran over as well.

    - A bird sleeping in very tall grass

    - Snake

    - Snake skin

    - Rat

    - Carpet (buried in grass)

    - Spray Paint Can (Which was pretty cool to see the damaged can do a dance from the pressure):dancing:

    - Countless number of frogs

    I hit a couple of those big spikes (about 2 feet long, inch a and a half in diameter) used for holding up those huge event tents, with the tractor. Ruined a new set of blades on the bush hog.

    In the past with the tractor I have hit,

    Queen Sized Box spring

    numerous car and trailer wheels.

    Sewer manhole

    Galvanized pipes

    truck bumper

    More animals than I can count. Snakes, rabbits, hundreds of field mice

    I've hit a few aluminum cans but that's about it.

    It seems like I keep finding lots of dead birds & squirrels. Of course there's always the doggie presents.
