Oh, the strange terms you learn as you delve deeper into caring for horses...We were excited to experience a rather drowsy (for Miss Cheyenne) version of this common practice called 'teeth floating' or 'floating the teeth' that this Quarter Horse mare was not very happy to endure. This method, with it's crazy apparatus and 'calming drugs' further prepared and enlightened us to the many perplexities of the 'modern' veterinary practice.
Part of responsibly maintaining property is taking care of dangerous trees. Recently we had a brief assessment from a local tree service (Thank you, Gary) and Dad decided we needed to take care of this particular alder sooner rather than later. After prayerful consideration, utilizing the resources available through his scaffolding work, he was able to complete the job on his own and save funds for other homestead needs. Each scaffold frame is 6'4" tall...including the base jacks this tower was about 45' tall.
We have another alder that is cracked more severely and will need to be tackled soon as well.
'Tech' was able to capture a bit of it on video and add his 'spin' to give you a taste of country tree trimmin'!
