can I still prune grapevines?

I am looking for a Farmall C, H or M, or another tractor of similar size and vintage. Running or not running, any condition considered. I am looking for something cheap that I can repair and use as a second tractor for work, so I don't want a shiny restored one. The nearer to the Pulaski/Sandy Creek area the better, as I will have to hire someone to move it for me. I will reply within 12 hours or less to anyone who contacts me. Thank you very much.

Sorry! That was a mispaste. Here's the question:

I have 2 grapevines, one Bluebell and one Somerset Seedless, which I planted last spring on either side of an arbor. They're well fertilized and mulched but I didn't get to pruning them. Now the vines are at bud burst. Can I still prune them now without damaging the vines? I've seen online references to doing a *second* pruning at/after bud break; how about a first one?

RE: can I still prune grapevines?

We just got around to doing our first pruning last week, it'll be fine. The sap runs out for a bit but it doesn't matter, they'll survive. They've always survived, now if only the birds wouldn't get there first when it's time to harvest.....hmmmm
