Here is on update from Jackalyn on her past week at the Brokaw Ranch!
This past Monday, I fixed fences and learned how to cut hay. There are sickles that move back and forth on this bar that extends out from the tractor. I learned how to grease components on the tractor, sharpen the sickles, and float to cut hay. Sharpening the sickles was pretty fun with the electric sanding tool I used.
On Tuesday, I moved cows out of a neighbor’s pasture, cleaned the house, and mowed the lawn.
On Wednesday, we had to fix the gasket on one of the tractors, as well as fix a crack…this did not go well and needed to be redone on Friday.
Thursday and Friday I cut hay and soon I will learn how to rake if the rain holds this next week.
