About the event
Prime Equine is proud to bring you: The Farm Girling Series
This series is intended to educate and empower all those badass cowgirls out there to some of the essential skills to farm-living. I learned most all of these skills the hard way – by myself and in the middle of an emergency situation. These quick evening tutorials are perfect for those gals who:
- Farm sit for acreage owners
- Want to live on an acreage one day
- Live on an acreage and haven’t had one of these issues plaque you – YET!
Everything is always easier with two people or help, but undoubtedly everyone who lives on a farm will be alone on the ranch one time or another, so our focus is on how to repair and do things by our self.
Keep On Rollin – How to Move a Bale Without a Tractor.
This is one of my most bad-assy tricks. I actually have two ways to do this and I’ll show you both.
I spent half a winter feeding my horses round bales, WITH slow feed nets on them, with nothing but a truck, and no one else to help. I also used these skills when my skid steer had a flat tire. Brutus didn’t care that the horses needed to be fed, he was out of commission and the horses were hungry. On the farm, you ALWAYS need a Plan B! And my idea of a plan B is NOT to open a bale in the stack and start to transport hay to the pen and hand feed. #nothanks
Doing things alone on the farm I have learned how important self preservation is of my body’s health, so using equipment however we can, and proper preparation and minimization of intensive labour can go a long way in keeping me out on the farm til I’m 90. Along with being prepared for the undoubted day that even if you have a tractor, it doesn’t start – we will talk about preparedness all around, including your bale storage, farm layout and feeding station planning. Then, we will literally move around some round bales and net them for feeding - without a tractor!
Dress Code: Your regular chore clothes, and there will be a pop quiz at the end as I’ll be watching for some essential farm girling uniform protocols.
