    I'm not much of a photographer. More mechanical than artistic but here's one.

    20180306_173542.jpg



    this is my eldest son. While most 10 year olds are playing video games he's working like a man hauling 50lb bags of feed, wheelbarrows of wood chips, digging post holes, driving t posts, putting up fence, digging trenches, and tending the rabbitry. For fun he likes hunting, fishing, and camping. On the weekends he, his grandfather, and I shoot skeet. He's pretty good with a 20awg shotgun.

    He gets straight A's, has his father's mechanical inclination and a little bit of a stubborn streak. He's a damn good kid and I'm proud to call him my son.

    You go man! My son bought his first car (73 Plymouth) at the age of 14 with his own money. He's 28 now and still has the car.

    @Chic Rustler the picture of your son is encouraging me to add one of mine. (The first one is just for perspective...) This is my son pruning one of the pecan trees. IMG_20180313_123731.jpg IMG_20180313_123754.jpg

    Homesteading sure gives us opportunity to try new things!

    Yep, with tree spikes, and a tree harness. It was a lot harder than he thought it would be!
