flat ryan Graff Land & Livestock#FlatRyan found his way to our farm through our printer. (Very cheap way to travel.)

After we gave him a new plaid shirt and cowboy boots, we put Flat Ryan to work.

We were putting up square bales of hay into the barn. First Ryan helped unload the rack.

But then he decided to help the boys up in the hay mow.

The quickest way to get up there was to simply ride a bale on the conveyor. So that’s what he did.

It must have been close to feeding time because the red steer wanted to see how Ryan tasted.

All I can say is cow saliva wasn’t good for Ryan’s complexion.

Though Ryan did seem to be excited about it.

We had some lime hauled to where we had wheat this year.

After we harvest the corn and beans, we will have the lime spread on the fields to improve the soil ph.

Ryan really wanted to play in the lime like it was sand but it started to irritate his delicate skin.

Poor thing.

Thanks for stopping by Flat Ryan.

  1. This is too cool! In the 6th grade we had to make a “Flat Stanley” that got to go on the farm, to business, on fire trucks exc! The person who took him around with them would blog/wright about what they (them and Stanley) did for the day. They kept Flat Stanley for 5 days then would return him and there logging to the 6th graders. The kids loved this project! Now, he wasn’t 6 foot tall but he was still really cool and a good experience for the kids on how a day for “adults” went……

  2. I really like the concept of Flat Ryan. It’s a really creative way to tell people about what goes on in the world of agriculture, and it also can appeal to readers of all ages.
