Today was a tractor day!! I spread fertilizer this morning, then in the afternoon I disked up a piece of the pasture where we fed round bales last fall. It was REALLY wet last fall and the ground tramped up really bad. We're going to broadcast seed some ryegrass and oats.

Then, after supper, I took the old TLB out to the water pond, which was getting pretty wel filled back in from the cattle wondering through it, and got to do some digging with the backhoe.:D

Ahh! Out on the tractor alone in the country. Man, machine, and the smell of freshly turned soil. That is a good day! :thumbsup:

I know just the feeling parts! I cut the pasture, hiking trails, and both drive ways today for the first time this season and got about 5 hours of seat time myself on the 4410. ;) :D

Jody, after about 3 hours on the hoe, I don't think I would embarrass myself too badly, :lmao: and you shouldn't have to worry about dropping your camera from laughing.:D I won't be putting the local contracter out of business or any thing, but I should be able to do what digging we need done around the farm.


Bear, WOW!! THat's quite a tag-team of drills!! How many HP is that Massey??

ba, gas here went to 93 cents/ liter. Multiply x 3.78 to get price/ gallon in Candian$. The hoe is the only gas tractor other than the antiques, all the work tractors are diesel.
