Hi, Dinah.  I arrived in this album from the Jewelry Ring.  It looks like lovely country where you live.  Thanks for sharing all the pictures - of everything!  Harry, your jewelry, your studio . . . it's wonderful to see it all and to feel your passion for it all.  Thanks again.  Enjoy your day!  Karen

Rt. 63 N in Batavia, just before the Oatka Milk Plant, my truck at 30mph and in 4wd, started skidding to the left-there was an 84 Lumber on the left with a chain link fence, a milk truck coming at me, a telephone pole, speed sign, and field to the right.

I turned in the direction of the skid to the left, it came back and I let it just drift into the field, hoping I didn't hit anyone or a sign or telephone pole.  It took about 3 minutes of sitting there wondering how I was going to get out of the field, as the traffic was quite heavy.  I took it out of high 4WD, and put it in Low 4WD and drove out, then went into the milk plant just ahead on the right and called work and told them I was not going to be coming into work.  LOL.  If it was that bad going to work at noon, then coming home at 5pm was going to be worse.  It took me 1 1/2 hours to get home, 4WD high and 30mph. One truck coming at me on 246 (my road), was crawling along and started to skid into my lane, and I was still having trouble just getting home.

12x12 8' long beams from the barn on 4" patio pavers.  These are all trotting poles for Harry to help with rhythm, engagement and tempo.  He walks over them, and trots over them.

Back field-way out there, started getting holes and very hard, so I moved all the beams, one by one with the tractor and a chain and dragged them down closer to the arena.

Two beams, and one 9" round pole on a 20m circle.  These are all trotting poles for Harry.  These help with rhythm, engagement, and tempo, and the small rectangle in the front will be for a little ditch.  He loves doing this kind of thing.

Everything is staked with rebar hammered into the ground.  I can stand on them and they don't move.  They are all up off the ground about 4".

These poles are all 12' 4x4's on 4" pavers, until I get bolted 4x4's on them.  The first one is 10'.

Exercise field for Harry.  Posts and Beams from the old barn I brought out here to make a walk/trot/canter exercise area for Harry to have a break from the arena.  He loves to come out here and play.  These have all been moved to down towards the barn and arena area.

Everything is pretty small, it's not the height that is important, it's for engagement, rhythm, tempo at all three gaits, and fun.  Most of them are about 18" to 2', and the ditch is about 4' wide.

Here is an extraordinary long load of 19 axles parked by the field at my farm.  These types of loads pass here because this particular stretch of road connecting roads from Canada to Interstate 390 are free from over passes,low hanging wires and congested areas.

Moving off after checking tires and chains. This load had 2 State Police escorts front and rear, and 3 Escort vehicles in front of those and behind.  This is a very heavy piece of machinery for the wind mills.  
I've always been fascinated with these wide/oversize/long loads.  I had my truck briefly with Daily, which is one of the oldest oversize hauling companies in NA.

Most horses would be freaking out with a 38 axle tractor trailer and 4 escort vehicles, lights blinking, right next to him.  These things are enormous!  I was just happy it didn't roll off down into the field.
