Ok let me introduce myself. My first name is Frank & I am the owner & General Manger of Holz Equipment Service located at Gentry, Arkansas. I am 62 years old, of those years 32 were spent operating a 300 acre farm, we had Dairy & Beef cattle in addition we were known as Rocky Top Farms which was a commercial hay broker supplying the local farmers & ranchers with their hay needs. However after our two sons married and left home it became to much for my wife Sharon and I to handle & in 1990 we sold off most of the land & equipment & stated Holz Equipment Service, today it is a two man service center for all brands of Agriculture & Industrial equipment. We do everything from minor repairs to major overhauls. I hope this is not to much information, & it is my wish that others can benefit from my years of attending the University Of Hard Knocks where I majored in Trial & Error. By the way; don't expect a quick response from me, for I have to hunt & peck on this blasted keyboard so it takes me awhile. Frank at Holz Equipment Service

Hi, all! I'm just starting out accumulating the stuff I will need to run a little hobby farm here in South Central Kansas. The hubby and I have got 37 acres and plan to have someone else plant hay on most of it.
We actually live on only 3-5 acres of it and are getting ready to put up fencing for two Belgian draft horses on 3 of those acres. Last year, due to the expense of actually buying the place, we were forced to mow the small yard in front of the house with (gasp!) a PUSH MOWER! This year, we are trying to move up in the world from walking to riding! And I'm sure it won't stop until... someday... we have our own haying equipment (preferably horse-drawn).
Ah, so goes farm life. Chores are never done & the equipment you need is always in next year's budget!
Other than that, I work in a nursing home and the hubby does computer-related stuff for a Wichita museum. His hobby is astronomy & mine is horses. We are owned by 2 retired-racing greyhounds and several other small pets (the number of which grows almost daily).
Welcome Drafthorse. I got to say a push mower is fine for a small city lot, but NO FUN atall on a REAL yard. I had a bad year for equipment falures last year, and spent WAY more time then I wanted behind those handle bars of a push mower.
