This is the horse/cow pasture and it's always eaten down, all the other fields have alfalfa growing on them and you end up soaked right up to your waist! This is the view I see from my living room window. And don't think they don't get done when company is here, I've had everyone out there from my Mom to Aunts and Uncles helping, people from the city just love doing this stuff! And it just looks plain funny to see them in rubbers (gum boots)!!
Some days we have two vehicles and we'll leave one parked at the bottom but usually I run (yeah really, well maybe a fast walk) back up to the top of the field, turn the hydrant on, and grab the vehicle we've got at the top. You always keep a bit of water running while you are connecting the pipes just so everything stays put, when you come to the last pipe you put the plug in and then the line has to be turned on full blast when you're done. For the most part it's just as I described but we have the odd field where it's a triangle shape, or wider at the bottom than the top, or the hydrants are mickey moused, when you come across this you improvise and do the best you can :)
You may have noticed, in the top picture, one of the pipes has a hole in it, eventually it will be fixed or replaced and it really doesn't hurt if the hole is small. Here's a short video clip showing how sometimes the pipes end up broken.
