    Cleaning Diesel?

    I It's clear with "frogspawn" . It was floating but I'd disturbed it dipping the tank to see how much's left in it. From what everyone's saying sounds like I should use it in the MF35 & try to source some new stuff for other uses?!

    Cleaning Diesel?

    If there was a garage I wouldn't be asking! Thanks though, point taken.

    Cleaning Diesel?

    Are biocides only good for prevention or can I clean up old diesel & use it safely? Does filtering get rid of everything? We've problems getting fuel delivery to the back of beyond just now. We've got an old plastic tank that has sludgy white diesel in. Wondering if I can clean it up well enough...

    Royal Mail stops Saturday letter deliveries

    We get mail in a box at the end of the road. Usually 4 days a week though. Parcels are left in the shed at the next farm in the valley & we call round to check if there are any every few days. Glad I saw this thread - need to avoid the postie on Mondays.

    Newspaper Subscriptions

    Sheep hayrack on wheels (IAE probably)

    We use IAE wheeled racks. We've probably more wind than most farms (!) & we've never had one blow over - you just put them end-on to it & a breeze-block against the wheel to stop them rolling along. They warp slightly with time & you need to start using a cotter pin or similar to keep the lid...

    Advice on buying a new dog

    We'll be looking for a collie pup after lambing is out of the way. The bloke we got the last one from isn't breeding any more so we're starting from scratch after a long time out of the loop. I'd want to see both parents & get to know the breeder first, so really I suppose I'm looking for a...

    Mesh Dog Run?

    Where would I go to buy galvanised mesh panels, one with a gate, to build a dog run? (I've tried a couple of places found on Google but they stop returning my calls when they find out I'm in Scotland!)
