Photo Challenge: 7 Farm Fails

No Horse Nation readers were harmed in the making of this week’s photo challenge.

Spring is here! …which increases the amount of time we’re spending around the farm and our workload as our facilities emerge from winter’s snowy blanket and we hurry to get everything ship-shape for warmer weather. The more time we spend on the farm, the greater the likelihood we get ourselves into trouble.

A friendly Horse Nation reminder: while we’re taking a moment to recognize farm fails this week, many of which involve large equipment, we at HN also want to make sure our readers stay safe out there. Make sure your tractor is fitted with a ROPS and you’re using all recommended safety equipment, including a seat belt, when in operation. We love our readers and want you all to stay safe!

Without further ado…

A few years ago, I was out mowing the pastures at the farm where I worked. One was across a creek, and I got the tractor so stuck we had to take the mower off and pull it out with the truck

100% fail. That time I simultaneously dropped a round bale and tried to climb up the round bale stack behind me. Photo by Mary Sansevere (after I escaped. And changed my underwear.)
