Honk if you like farmers
« on: December 08, 2014, 07:34:06 pm »
OK, so I ride bikes, but farming is what I do and I have a passion for it. In my hart en in my siel is ek 'n boer. Niks laat my hart so jubel soos die boerdery nie; blinkvet diere, netjiese landerye, goed opgepaste veld, 'n netjiese opstal, natgebore lammers en kalwers, 'n mooi trotse dier.

Farming is about joy, heartache, passion, long hours, disappointment, special moments, awesome sunsets and sunrises, grace and mercy.  It humbles you and makes you small and thankful for all the blessings you have and that you don't deserve.

Ek gaan in die toekoms hier boerdery en verwante fotos pos en almal is welkom om hulle spesiale kiekies hier te kom pos.  Daar is reeds 'n koöperasiestoep fred waar algemeen oor boerdery gesels word so kom ons hou hierdie maar vir kiekies.

Like this fred.
While working in the USA on farms i one day saw this poster about two boys standing next to a tractor wearing jean longjohns.
They must have been 4 years old. One leaned his shoulder against the backtyre of the tractor and the other having both hands in his
pockets.
The one asked the other "been farmin long"?

I have surfed the net many a day and i cannot find that poster. :(

And So God Made a Farmer - A Poem by Paul Harvey

And on the 8th day, God looked down on his planned paradise and said, "I need a caretaker." So God made a farmer.

God said, "I need somebody willing to get up before dawn, milk cows, work all day in the fields, milk cows again, eat supper and then go to town and stay past midnight at a meeting of the school board." So God made a farmer.

"I need somebody with arms strong enough to rustle a calf and yet gentle enough to deliver his own grandchild. Somebody to call hogs, tame cantankerous machinery, come home hungry, have to wait lunch until his wife's done feeding visiting ladies and tell the ladies to be sure and come back real soon -- and mean it." So God made a farmer.

God said, "I need somebody willing to sit up all night with a newborn colt. And watch it die. Then dry his eyes and say, 'Maybe next year.' I need somebody who can shape an ax handle from a persimmon sprout, shoe a horse with a hunk of car tire, who can make harness out of haywire, feed sacks and shoe scraps. And who, planting time and harvest season, will finish his forty-hour week by Tuesday noon, then, pain'n from 'tractor back,' put in another seventy-two hours." So God made a farmer.

God had to have somebody willing to ride the ruts at double speed to get the hay in ahead of the rain clouds and yet stop in mid-field and race to help when he sees the first smoke from a neighbour's place. So God made a farmer.

God said, "I need somebody strong enough to clear trees and heave bails, yet gentle enough to tame lambs and wean pigs and tend the pink-combed pullets, who will stop his mower for an hour to splint the broken leg of a meadow lark. It had to be somebody who'd plow deep and straight and not cut corners. Somebody to seed, weed, feed, breed and rake and disc and plow and plant and tie the fleece and strain the milk and replenish the self-feeder and finish a hard week's work with a five-mile drive to church.

"Somebody who'd bale a family together with the soft strong bonds of sharing, who would laugh and then sigh, and then reply, with smiling eyes, when his son says he wants to spend his life 'doing what dad does.'" So God made a farmer.

I am just a small time farmer and this bloke is my best friend in my Hugenoot stud. He also just loooooves the girls

Honk to all the bigger farmers struggling under the present dispensation.



I live to please but don't always succeed
