Today a muddy mess...In a short time, a new horse arena. 

Yep, before and after......... 

8 big stumps, 3 to 4000 lbs plus, needed to be dug up and hauled away by us. 

Hauling the top layer of muck away, very, very heavy stuff! Try not to use hog fuel in wet area...it is just a big water trap...no mater what they tell you...

This was 1 of the small stumps. 

Doug fir stumps hold out till the very end and the roots will not let go of the dirt. We have to flip them over and use the back hoe to knock the dirt off. These held an easy ton of dirt. 

It's not that the tractor is small,{50 horse and 10,000 lbs}  but the stumps are big! This was a ceder about 5 feet accross!! 

 A little too heavy to get up over the side of our dump truck. That means hand unloading....
