Finding The Arena

Sunday, we were back at Oak Creek Ranch.  Brett's friend Marty helped get the tractor unloaded and then he and Brett got the box scraper attached.  Even though the sun was high and blazing down without mercy, Marty and I knew that Brett was going to use the tractor for something.  He didn't haul it all the way up from Aspen Meadows to have it sit in the barn.

The warm up arena is full of weeds.

Brett went around and around, scraping up the weeds.  Marty and I threw the weeds into a cart and dumped them outside the arena.

After a few times around, the base sand made an appearance.  It started to look like an arena again.

Brett made good progress and I expect he'll keep working on it this week.  Having Marty up was great.  He kept Brett company and they took turns driving.  He helped load the tractor and its attachments.  He helped unload the tractor and the attachments.  Brett drove him to the airport Sunday afternoon while I finished up the chores.  Thanks Marty!!  You're the best!


  1. what a great, great friend!!! bless him!

  2. Oooh, looks like a NICE arena! I'm jealous!

  3. I see some big changes coming as you uncover Oak Creek Ranch. So glad that Brett had some help from a good friend.

  4. I have so much catching up to do! You've had big changes. I knew they were in the works but I'm behind. That arena is going to clean up beautifully and Brett is just the guy to do it :). Something about men and tractors...

  5. ...and that's just the warm-up arena??? WOW!

  6. Great arena. So nice when you have friends that help. I'm sure little by little you'll uncover more wonderful things on the property.


Thanks so much for commenting! I love the conversation.
