The new "old tractor"!

   Now we’re cookin’. We bought us an old 51 Ford Tractor. It sure isn’t much to look at, but it’s really cool. In the purchase price, we received a brush-hog, blade and gin pole. It’s going to help us old folks move stuff around a lot better this winter. With this sandy ground moving under our feet when it gets wet and cold, there will be no more waiting until it gets dry to move the horse trailor and round bales. : ) Not forgetting to mention, we’ll able to mow the larger lot behind the house. Of course, there wasn’t much mowing to do because of the drought conditions this summer.

I took a schooling lesson on how this thing works. He started out showing me where to check the fluids and how it operates. First checking the…
  1. Oil
  2. Transmission fluid
  3. Water level.
  4. Gas

Next he showed me where the clutch and pedals were. The stick shift, how to shift, where the key was, then the starter button. It fired up immediately when I pushed it. Yay! Then I got to take it for a test ride. I thought to my self as I was riding up the drive-way, this thing is slow as hell. Then, Ron said there was a faster gear if, I wanted to go faster. Now, we’re truckin’. lol

Good lord! I’m certainly not dressed for taking pictures. I could have prepared my self. ha ha ha!
We are an unsightly mess this morning, but we do clean up pretty well. lol I’m positive the animals around the place don’t care what we look like, as long as a feed bucket’s in our hands.
