Things that Work - ATV

With the need to feed and clean-up after alpacas coupled with a little more snow than we're used to, we had to get Hubba a tool to help with the ranch chores when I am out of town.  I learned that you can get attachments for ATV's such as snow blowers and plows. 

We weren't really sure how much these things would cost, but figured an ATV would be a better investment than a snow blower... at least with the ATV we could haul things and use it to get around the farm in all seasons.

We found a used ATV in town that already had a winch and plow installed.  Hubba's been practicing with it the last couple of days and now has zero issue reaching the corrals.

Oh by, my DH is now very jealous. But I tell him, "We don't have that kind of weather, honey!"

LOL. I have to say, I think the ATV will be a very valuable tool for all seasons.

I LOVE that ATV! What kind is it? I have a 10 year old Polaris on its last legs. Used the snot out of it.
