Thursday we pulled a windmill. The leathers at the bottom of the well had gone bad so we pulled 160 feet of pipe out of the ground. Replaced the the bottom part of the well, It had rubbed and wore it's self out. Needed more than leathers. It was the first well I have ever pulled. We used the winch on the service truck and a couple pulley's. It really worked slick. I climbed to the top and set chains and the pulley there. I kept the pipes strait coming up. I didn't get any really good pictures of the action. Now the ol' girls got fresh water and more pasture.
The bumper on the service truck is almost done this is what I have been working on. It needs a couple bars under the headlights and a few over the winch.
We had Ranch Roping practice Friday night. I think things are starting to come together for me and my horse. Some of them steers were feeling pretty dadgum froggy! Lots of spring and bounce in them. I went over to a horse trainer yesterday, that ropes with us. He helped me so much with my horse! We went slow and worked on flexing and getting me to control his feet. I'm starting to feel every move the horse make's. I told Sharon last night its like riding in a boat on the ocean. Your feeling the waves thinking is this the movement I'm looking for???? Then a big wave throws you in the air and YOU know that was what you were looking for. I'm going to catch my horse and go back to day for some more work. Until next time take care
