Long Over Due!


I know I am long over due for a post!  A long cold winter had me in the posting doldrums.  Just didn’t seem like there was that much interesting going on and no one wants to hear complaining about how cold it was!  Many of these pictures are repeats from out facebook page.  So if you aren’t all ready, “like” us on facebook!

Painting Dad’s 660:

On the subject of painting tractors, picked up a White 2-135 that we are fixing up to sell.  Throwing a quick coat of paint on that as well:

I like this picture of a group of heifers munching away on grain:

Well, it looks like we may be getting into the field soon, so hopefully I will soon have pictures of spring field work.
