The snow is gone, the the grass is growing and stuff is happening at the homestead. The biggest news is that we have a new pickup and trailer. OK, neither are new, but they’re new to us.
The pickup is a gracious gift from my mom-in-law. It has exactly the things I’m looking for… It’s four wheel drive, long-bed and it’s a 3/4 ton.
You might remember that I have an International Scout II…
I swapped it for a trailer. I’m sad to see it go, but I haven’t been using it. I think I’ve put a total of 200 miles on it since purchase.
Here’s the trailer…
That’s actually a pic before I bought the trailer. It should hold at least 6 pigs ready for butcher. It can be pulled with a goose-neck or a regular hitch. The top also comes off if needed.
I really like the trailer. There’s a lot of daylight getting through to the inside. This should make it a more calm loading experience for pigs, etc. All I need to do now is pick up 2 and 5/8ths ball and I should be ready to haul!
