We have been living a bit of ‘This is the Mud!’ here today.
(We even had young KitKat himself bogged waist deep in mud… Don’t ask me how!).
This is the dozer that clattered ker-THUD,
as it lurched and it slurped sinking deep in the mud.
Oh! You don’t remember that bit in the book? That’s because I never wrote it – until today.
Today there was no dozer to rescue the cow (who has obviously learnt her lesson and wasn’t even stuck!) because today… the dozer was stuck!
Unfortunately, the biggest tractor that waded in for the rescue was soon… stuck too!
So after a loooooooong drive across bumpy paddocks to the furthest part of the property (or so it seemed) we got a littler tractor to free the big tractor to get to work on the dozing dozer.
……….Three hours later, the dozer had sunk deeper…
……….But hubby would not be beaten! He tried chains, branches and logs…
…and a stylish off-sider.
He even tried two tractors!
But in the end he had to leave the dozer dozing, as happy as a digger in mud…
