In Need of Supervision

Okay, I want you to look at the following pictures and guess what it is and what happened...


Hadn't quite figured it out yet?



Maybe you're gettin' close on what this is....



Here's a hint...it's part of a cowboy's attire.


Maybe the full view will help...


Okay, I'm guessing you have the what. So let's work on the how, shall we...


Our pasture before....



Our pasture after...



Got it?! Yes, the husband was shredding the pasture. I received a call and the first thing he said was, "I'm gonna need a new straw hat." My response, "If that's the worse thing you've ran over today, we're doing good."



He really needs constant supervision!

hahaha my dad does that when hes cutting grass for the township. He cuts big lots that probably americans own and don't come to ever then the township bills him. It's funny cause he keeps a stash of hats in his truck when he cuts the lots.

Just be glad you don't have fish flies there. My dad often comes back looking like swamp thing lol!

Yup at least that is all he ran over!
I was discing a field near my dads place and some kids had pitched a tent at the corner of the field... no one in the tent which was lucky ,Didn't see it and I caught the brace and ,well bye bye tent

LOL...What lengths men will go to just to get a new hat...I'm not gonna let My Man see this lest he get the same dang notion!

Interesting that you call in "shredding" because here in Tennessee we call it bush hogging.

I meant call "it", not call in.

Oops!

The Wife said...

We call is brush hoggin' or shreddin'. Isn't funny how things are called so many different things around the country.

Mikey said...

Oh my... yes, he needs a new hat. And some supervision.
Girl, why are you not doing your "I think your tractor's sexy" routine and waltzing out in a short country dress and boots with a jug of sweet tea? C'mon now, get with it!!! :)

Homestay Mama said...

That is too funny!
Glad it was only a hat that got shredded!

Neas Nuttiness said...

Thanks goodness his head wasn't still in it!

The Husband said...

Mikey you have a great idea. Maybe the wife will listen to you. And I did need a new hat.

Pony Girl said...

Oh wow, that really got destroyed! That poor field didn't stand a chance! ;)

Robynn's Ravings said...

Well if anyone ever needs a whole bunch of hats plowed, harvested, or generally recycled, he's experienced now and can hire out!

Gecko said...

hahah....boys will be boys...unfortunatly!!!

City girl turned Country Girl said...

LOL WOW!!! That hat is so destroyed it looks like a burlap sack LOL!! yes I am thinking some definite supervision is needed LOL JK!!

kdwhorses said...

Poor guy~lost his hat! I'm wondering if he didn't "accidentaly" throw it in front of the tractor! HE HE HE!

Jennifer said...

LOL-that's exactly what happens to my husband's when he wants a new one!

Paintsmh said...

I am pretty certain ALL men ALWAYS need supervision! Particularly when there is equipment involved!

Still the field looks good! Wanna come do our old horse pasture? It could REALLY use it!

Andrea said...

Oh my! Was it windy? Or is his cab fully enclosed? Even with out a hat the pasture looks nicely cut! A sad story, my FIL ran over his Jack Russell with the bush hog. The Jack Russell was chasing rabbits and my FIL just couldn't stop in time, the dog just ran right under the bush hog.

Annette said...

That is just too funny! =) Most men do require supervision when they are playing with their toys. =)
*NOTE* no malice intended towards our men. I love mine to pieces (even his hats!).

After 30+ years as a programmer and project manager, I began to "help" my FIL with his ranch. The first two times out brush hogging, I went under tree limbs too low and bonked my head and lost two hats that I didn't want to lose. My FIL told me that the way I drive, I should be glad that is all I lost!

I'm getting better at it... no lost hats in years. However, sometimes I slip and tell him the "yard needs mowin'".(Translation: the pasture needs brush hogging). He just looks at me and shakes his head (while smiling).
