Having The Right Tools

Having the right tools for a job on the farm makes the job easier. When I’m cleaning the goat stalls and pens it is important to me to have the correct tools.

The tools I use to clean are a leaf rake. I rake all the stalls and pens with a leaf rake. With a shovel I scoop up all the piles that I have raked up. Next up is a hay fork (that’s what I call them) is great for picking up hay or piles with hay in them.

These are my three go tools on the farm for cleaning up after our livestock. It makes my day to have the right tools. 🙂 When I don’t have the right tools for the task it takes me longer to do that task. That’s not good…when you have several other task to do.

Water in Your Gas

Hi there, welcome to Tailspin farms. I have to tell you about my boo-boo. I had a couple of gas cans empty, so I put them in the back of my truck.  They rode around in the back of my truck for several days before I remembered to fill them.

Stace and I was headed out to bring the goats in. We were in the cart that we use every day. I told him we had better stop and put gas in the cart before we headed out to bring in the goats. I filled the cart with one of the gas cans I had filled the day before. Off we went…then the cart started spiting and sputtering all the way out to let the goats in and all the way back.

We made it back to the house and Stace started checking out the cart. He didn’t need to be doing this because he just had knee surgery a week ago. But he was determined. He checked the gas…and guess what, it was very cloudy. It would normally be clear, and you could see the bottom of the tank. After checking the gas can he found that the spout had been chewed on by what looks like a Squirrel, and water from all the rain had got into the can and I didn’t realize it when I was filling it.

It just so happened that all the family was coming over for Christmas. Kristen and Matt arrived first. Matt being the nice guy he is drained the gas out of the cart. He checked the other gas can to make sure there was no water in it 😊 There wasn’t, so it was good to go. Matt put the new gas in and the cart runs now.

Thank God for the men in our family know how to fix things. It seems like I always have something to fix around the farm. If I didn’t break it, it breaks on its own. 😊

So now I’m able to do all my chores using the cart.

Need The Right Tools for the Job

When you have the right tools for a job it makes it easier to do that job. Here on our farm “Tailspin Farms” when one of my tools get broke or misplaced it’s hard for me to complete the job at hand. 

Cleaning our stalls and barns here are some of my favorite tools, a leaf rake, grain shovel, and manure fork. I use them every day to clean up after our goats.   

Leaf rack works great to clean up after goats. 
I rake the goat pellets into the gain shovel. 
A manure fork works great to pick up old hay.

Tools on the Farm

Including the leaf rake, grain shovel, manure fork we also use a good heavy water hose. We like to use the heavy hoses because they last longer and hold up to all the use here at our farm. 

I would call our equipment tools also. Just because they are a key tool in helping us with big jobs. Lik our EZGo cart with a dump bed. Our cart gets used twenty-four / seven. No matter what we are doing we always use our cart. When cleaning up after our livestock this cart works great. Building a fence or repairing fence we load up the cart and here we go. One of the best gifts my hubby has bought me. 🙂
