This was another fence row that needed clearing, only this time the operator got into deep mud caused by the recent rains. Fortunately, he made it back up the hill. We had to hold off on two areas that were slated for clearing due to the recent heavy rains. At least the wet ground make it much easier for pushing over the shallow-rooted pines.
We were left with three very large piles. I was in favor of turning the goats loose on them to clean up all the green, but Ralph feared that as high as the piles are, the goats would clime on them and get caught in the unconsolidated branches. I know what he's thinking..."I need a can of gasoline & a flair gun!"
