My husband is the coolest person I know. This weekend, he rented a bobcat with a mowing deck. This is not your dad’s lawnmower. This thing will take out massive manzanita plants, small Acacia trees and water pipes. It cleared over 40,000 sq ft of brush in about eight hours. To make a comparison, it took three adults six hours to do 700 linear feet of that same brush, using hand tools and a chainsaw. When I showed up to the ranch husband was covered in dust, all I could see was his eyes. Sadly, I didn’t have the camera with me. I did get some photos of the clearing he made that is to become the first horse pasture.

And here is where the mower sheared the water pipe. The grass was so tall, we didn’t know there was a water pipe there!

    We call them Bushogs (the mower not your hubby) in the midwest. They will take out a small village of brush & trees. Enjoy the pasture.
