    The Hess Whitetail took care of a whitetail yesterday. My mug isn’t worth looking at so this handsome devil filled in for the photo:confused:

    Most of the time, a secondary sheepsfoot is the best blade.

    Been treating the bosses retired mare for an abscess in her hoof, here I've cut away the old bandages, being very careful, the not super pointy blade is an extra safety measure.
    Sorry this one is blurry, hard to take pics and hold a horses foot upside down lol. At the tip of my thumb is the hole the vet cut for drainage. The brown muck is whats left of the drawing salve from the previous treatment.
    A soaking in Epsom salt, 20 minutes to stand there and make sure she stands still,easily said but a real challenge even though she's a very good patient horse.
    Duct tape pad for a sole.
    After applying drawing salve I put a diaper on her foot, then wrap in vet wrap. Then a wrap in duct tape mostly to make it tough enough to walk around and not fall apart. Hopefully today is the last day.
    Not a bad looking ol girl to be in her 40's, still runs and kicks up her heels from time to time.:D

    Done that quite a few times. Getting them to stand in the bucket is the hard part for sure!

    State wide Blizzard, first pull on the snowblower and SNAP!!! The yeller nut cut the end of the nylon cord effortlessly in the repair process;):thumbsup:

    Changed the oil and spark plug on mine last weekend. It looks like we'll need it over the next couple of days.

    I should try to replace the starting cord on mine. I'm dependent on the electric starter.

    This certainly doesn't qualify as a workout, but the little Case swayback helped me harvest a little rosemary to use in an herbed butter rub for a turkey breast for supper. We didn't get any leftovers from Thanksgiving dinner, so we made our own.

    I hear you Jer, I was as well until the electric start went out on mine about 10 years ago and for $200.00 I passed on fixing it. It's a 7 hp Briggs and Stratton MTD snowblower that just WON'T die:eek::D I bought it in 1996 and it has no light, hand warmers and any amenities at all, just a bare bones snowblower that would leave the energizer bunny in it's snow dust:D I simply service it seasonally and it runs and runs, a one pull wonder:thumbsup:

    I do dream of a new fancy smancy Husqvarna when I stop in occasionally to the local shop but now I'm on a quest to see how long I can hang in there with my trusty MTD pal;):)

    Had what I am assuming is the same blizzard in Rapid City as well so I used my opinel #8 to open a bag of rice for my meal didn't really have much else to eat and I don't feel like walking to the nearest restaurant and grocery store was definitely a no go.

    I feel similarly about a new one. And similarly, as long as my old henchman is steadfast in the shield-wall, I can stand to twiddle the chute crank and do without a chute lever.

    That blizzard seems to be missing us. Looks like a dry week with highs near and above 40. No complaints.
    And speaking of working knives, this one has suffered the rigors today of being selected to tackle those shrubs out front I've been yapping about for weeks or months.
    Or maybe the loom-fixer.
