A Short Back and Sides

Today was hedge trimming day. I don’t mean little 1m high hedges, or even those trip hazard tiny box hedges, but I mean shelterbelt wind-blocking sized hedges. Ours were a touch overgrown.

Cue picture of the view from our place, minus view (thanks mist!)

A slightly later picture of the view without mist, albeit with the sides of the shelterbelt already trimmed:

Shelterbelt trimming guy turned up with one of these:

It may not be yellow, and it may not technically be a digger, but it’s still pretty neat. Especially when it can do this:

The goats were quite happy, despite the noise, because we also had the Feijoa lining the driveway trimmed. Today I learned that it’s possible for a goat to be out-feijoa leaved. You just need a LOT of them:

Some cleanup required. Glad it’s not me!

And not to forget the really bad ass chipper that’s being used for the cleanup:
