My first thought -- LOOK at the grass!! I know your loving that. Plus, nice to have tree out of way. Of course, my goats would be all over it!! A playground. 😁

Well the dairy girls. The meaties aren't quit as inclined as adults. Definitely personality differences.

This is in the front field, the fence is all overgrown and needs lots of work. I’m glad to get this tree gone. They are going to sell the firewood. Wonderful! I have piles they can go through and get all they want.

Today was so beautiful, I stayed outside all day. I petted dogs and sheep, walked fencelines, looked at what I have to do.

This is a small part of the front fence row.

This is yaupon, it’s pretty in the fall. The green leaves flare and burn. The leaves have caffeine in them and make a nice tea. Sheep love to eat yaupon.

Wow!!!! How far does your property go beyond that "fence line"??? That's a monster. A job for the friend with their timber clearing equipment. The red berries are pretty 🤣
It would take a bull dozer, there’s a barbed wire fence in there. Bulldozer $$$$$$$$ A forestry mulcher would get into trouble real quick when it hit that wire.

I have used one of these for years to clean up overgrown fence lines. It doesn't do anything for grass, but will tear through briers, blackberry canes, climbing vines, grape vines and any branches smaller than my thumb.
The head tilts so I can make it nearly 90* and reach under the bottom strand of fence. Then make it point down to reach behind the fence and cut back anything 'reaching' in.

Worked GREAT for years - but I abused it HARD and this past month while I was clearing a lane for Eva to bypass the mud bog at the back of the barn, the pivoting head joint finally gave and now the head (which still runs) swings back and forth 180* - EEK!
