In the next subdivision over, a large track hoe was excavating for a new building. I am sure that she has never seen one operating and making all the clanking and banging noises. We moseyed on up and watched it work for a while. Other than keeping one ear on the machine and the other ear on me, it was a non event.
We had to stick to the roads because the field snow is up to my boot tops (when saddled). We tried an entrance, but gave it up as I did not want to get Biz all sweated up. Besides she and I are both a little out of shape.
