We've had a makeover of another kind in the farmyard. Our 1991 5-ton, 6-wheel drive Army truck has now become our feed truck. We bought the Army truck from a local auto repair shop a year and a half ago. It took awhile for Randy to price and find a feed box for the back.
This shows the size of the truck, compared to our pickup.
In May, we took the truck to Goddard's Equipment near Hill City to have a 6- by 12-foot Kelly Ryan feed wagon added to the back.
allocation of silage feed this winter.
Dad drove an Army truck in the Korean War, there's a bit of nostalgia there, too. I'm guessing he would have liked it about as much as Randy does. Big boys and their toys, you know!

Randy showed me his "two free knives" with the Goddard Equipment logo. I just love things like "free" knives and "free" ball caps when we bring home equipment in the five-figure range.
However, I must admit that it was time to retire the old feed wagon. It has served us well.
