    The first one in the picture zap is a storm damaged Maple that i pulled out of the tree line and there are half a dozen dead Ash that came out also..but i think today me and my buddy will be splitting some monster Maple that is already up at the farm. and we will be doing a 'Backwoods Savage' :cheese:

    i cannot lift these blocks so will have Leo working the splitter and i will be feeding them to him ;-)

    Out pulling some wood back to the farm yesterday Rotti and drove up to this guy...there was something really wrong with it as he didnt care about me and was digging his hind end. on the way back from the woods it was still hanging around the farm but by the time i got back with the gun he was gone..

    it was in rough shape and kinda felt bad for it...

    Looks like it had its leg in a trap. I'd be careful that no one is running a line in the area--I had a dog get caught in a trap someone forgot about.

    You may have addressed this earlier--haven't read the whole thread--but have you ever put a harness on Emma and had her pull wood out for you from tight spots?

    Never thought of that Leopard? We stay on the 600 acres and there shouldnt be any traps on it, but will keep an eye out for them for sure..thanks..

    Emma will sit down and not move a muscle if we put anything on her :cheese: so i dont think she would be much help in dragging ;-P
