  3. The boys and I just finished up this project. The only way to make snow look good is to put some red in it! Here are a few pictures for y'all. Only allowed to drive with socks, so the one picture is of the boys helping each other with their boots.

  4. Got to meet our newest grandson in person last week for the first time. Here's a pic of our first handshake. He was delivered a month before his due date via C-section. Our middle daughter turned 40 last September, and this little guy was a delightful surprise for all of us. Grandma's having a ball getting to look after him once in a while so momma can do a few things around the house. In some states, he could have been "terminated" due to his inconvenient timing. No other comment necessary.

He just bought this from our local Case IH dealership and had it delivered to my shop and have me install LED lights , clean it up nice fix a couple things . He has a smaller dairy farm and it will be his daily chore tractor , box spreader, move bales , grind feed . The tach shows 3234 hours but the tach cable was bad and the guy that traded it in said it had approx 5000 hours . I ended up up putting a new clutch in it , went to grease the throw out bearing and found the live power shaft about to strip out and upgraded it to a 14” flywheel so he now

  7. So as some of you know I recently found a tractor I was interested in. I called upon some fellow red power members to see if they knew anything about the dealer . I heard positive feedback . The weather could’ve been much worse so I did not want to burden anyone to go physically look at the tractor . It was in Greenwald Minnesota which is about 700 miles away. About the only thing I had to go buy was pictures, a conversation with some form members who spoke highly of him , and the man himself who was selling it. I imediately had a good feeling about it and he was quick responding to my q

  9. I was born in 73. Boys were raised to be tough, God fearing and protective of women. Good values were taught by my parents and most everyone else around. I do the same thing with my kids. My boys are tough, yet respectful and God fearing. They don't take sass. 17 year old just signed up for the Marines. Middle boy at 12 plays outside and never complains. Youngest boy at 5 is a cowboy, carrying his wooden pistol everywhere. My little girl, 10, is everything a girl should be, sweet, loving, caring and still tough. Each of the oldest 3 have corrected their teachers, respectfully, and

  10. Everyone has their favorite way of moving snow. A tractor and snowblower has been mine for a long time! No piles. No rocks in the grass. Every pass 7’ of snow disappears. It works good on 3-4” of snow and if need be you can attack 3-4’ of snow! I cleaned out the bar lot at home and when I finished the snow plow hadn’t been down the road yet so I headed to my parents 1/2 mile up the road. Took me half an hour as the snow was as deep as the blower in places so it was stop and go but I got it done. I saw the hiway commissioner today and he said my path with the snow blower made it way eas

  13. Mine is a typical 19th Century New England bank barn. It had some issues, mostly rot. In the wind you needed your sea legs to stand in the loft. I've got two sides rebuilt and some floor and loft replaced as necessary; a labor of love. Doing the vast majority single handed was tricky, especially sneaking in new posts and a 40' beam. I cabled the sides together, supported the loft with staging, and left whatever I could in place while getting those parts in place. Posts lifted with backhoe and long beam lifted with pump jacks. I rode my bucket between jacks to get the beam up somewhat level.

  15. So, I wuz running replacement heifers through the other day and about halfway I discovered I have a propensity towards using foul language. I am actually fairly good at it. 😪 Although it is common vernacular in these parts amongst my neighbors and me, with grandkids on the horizon, maybe I should try to clean it up a bit. 🤔 After all I don't want mom asking the youngun "where did you learn that kind of language" only to hear "I helped grandpa work heifers". 😲 Wish me luck. Next time I am trying to push the young dollies up the alleyway and into the chute, maybe I can sound a li

  20. It was big fun surprising Tony on Friday , the look on his face when his wife come pulling in the driveway with you know who riding shotgun , very excited to say the least 😎‘This car show was something , the quality of cars , trucks , motorcycles (tractor) is something 👍 I have got another generation started on tractors , this little man just turned 5 years old last week and he thought that tractor was the coolest thing he had ever seen . Got time up there and a started it up and warmed it up for a few min and let him run the foot feet 😳 That kid was hooked 👍, mom and dad doing videos

  21. I know there was another barn thread awhile ago but figured why not start a new one. Feel free to show your barn. There are many traditional German or PA Dutch built bank barns still standing in our area. Here is a few pics of ours. We guess that it was built in the mid 1800s and is standing strong today. My understanding is that the hay hook would be moved up and down by horses on a pulley system to stack loose hay in the side mows. This barn has a wood track and the hay hook is still there. The barn at our old place had an iron track. Looking from the front into the fe

  26. So @1586 Jeff and @m.c.farmerboy Here you go. It took a while and I’ve never counted or had them all out. Probably missed some and will add more pics as I go. 89 hammers in this picture (feet got cold when I took off shoes to count) Of those I have put handle in 51 of them. Across the top is the “in progress” group, wooden, plastic, and brass. Across the bottom is all ball pein hammers from 3lb (right) down to 4oz (left). In the center are specialty hammers, cut offs, swages, flatter, and punch hammers. Claw will have to be another picture....

  29. Tomorrow morning hopefully it will get battery cables and move to the other side of the shop swapping places with the 706. Decals aren't perfectly applied but they are on . If I was restoring one of these the hoods would be smooth and I would worry more about the perfect fit of the decals. There was two pieces of the cab kit missing to install yet, lights to wire , and a few little things yet

  30. The barn on our place was the selling point for me. I saw it and I couldn't have cared less about the house. I love old barns and spent alot of time drawing them in school instead of doing school work. Ours is a work in progress. I converted the north leanto into a shop and the rest is livestock related. My 806 and horse trailer are in the east leanto and the south leanto is split with access for the horses on one half and feeder calves on the other. Plans for this year are to tear out the old feed room and make it bigger and build stairs to the loft.

  31. Bought a book titled International Trucks of the 1950s at the I-80 truck stop last summer when BJ and I visited Farmall Land. Finally getting around to reading it and found this picture. The caption reads: Crouch Bros. Inc. of St. Joseph, Missouri, seen here pulling a flatbed trailer, owned this ACOF Sightliner. It has the 48” cab, standard cast spoke wheels and most likely the V-549 gasoline engine. The 48” cabs were short but there was plenty of room for comfort. The load contains International 460 tractors.

  32. Got a text from my young friend tonight, Runner. Had to cut him short as I was feeding. So he sent me a messenger into the barn. Thanks Runner. I made sure he left safely. Just a young one who sat quietly watching me feed. Just,as Lorenzo said, bitchin cool!!

  33. I lose more than my share. Usually never find them again. So, rented some pasture and bought some hay on the same place to get 200 cows a little farther through the winter before I send them back. Backing up to this bale, two maybe three year old hay, not even sure who put it up, I see something on the netwrap. Been hangin' there for who knows how long but, Happy Valentine's Day to me, I have a really nice folding Kershaw now. Yeah, I know, it don't take much to entertain me😪, I look for the little things each day. 😄

  34. Its not really romantic, but I figured I would take the opportunity to grab credit for something i was going to do anyway 😂. I had bought a WTKirkman reproduction hurricane lantern about 5-10 years ago and used it in the woodshed at my grandparents. It has been dry from oil for long enough you couldn’t even smell it. I wanted to have some bedside lights for reading or whatever that weren't lamps cluttering up the side tables. I plan to get a wrought iron style hanger and mount it on the wall. Also i will get some “antique” led bulbs to go in them. I tried to buy another to match from the shop

  35. Not mine------but an old landmark in the Mississippi Delta. Picture snapped years ago----Rolling Fork, Mississipi. Not many cattle left in the Delta nowadays. Not sure this barn is still standing??? Nothing more picturesque to the landscape than a colorful old time barn. Keep 'em coming. DD

  36. Not my barn. Grandpa Otto's that farmed/Dairy until his sale 1967....Bro & I stopped for look see after finishing a job in the area. New owners have kept it up. Sent many hours helping milk, Armstrong in the silo, Armstrong the gutters, mowing in hay mow, etc. helping Grandpa! Close enough to ride the 5 miles on my bike.

  38. Quite often you hear about millions of dollars spent researching weird random stuff and then papers get published with more grants given. This has spawned an idea. We should study the effect of coverall zipper sound on the lower intestinal system. No matter how "prepared" I am shortly after layering up and zipped into those coveralls I get to hurry undoing. 😀 BTW I just want to be a paid test subject with a variety of coveralls / bibs furnished for testing. Someone else can do the math and keep the books
