  1. My 11 year old who has cerebral palsy is always grumpy towards night time, he never wants hugs or snuggle time once he decides to go to sleep. Normall he dose not like the dogs we get, in fact we went through 4 dogs that we got rid of because he didn't like the,. We just bought a new dog, half German sheperd amd half great pyrenees and these 2 just clicked right away, even snuggling for night time. He has been smiling more and being way more happy since we got it. This dog was a Godsend for him.

She called me asked if I was stopping to get her for chores so she could help build a pen an move the new calves. After we got that done we had to fill water tub an she went an grabbed these 2 buckets an filled ( half full) by herself an said “ Look Pap! I have buckets like you!” She fills my heart

  6. Just thought I'd share this. Found it today while cleaning. My great grandmother was a quilter. Made all kinds of quilts, blankets, throws and knit and crochet blankets. We always had a quilt on our bed that grandma made. When I was young, and my parents were still adding to our family, my next youngest brother and I began sharing a room, which got more crowded as they kept adding kids, lol. Anyway, grandma made us matching quilts and curtains for the room. When another brother moved in, she made another quilt that was farm themed and similar, but different from the first two. Da

  12. Our small town had their junior prom last night. Being the parent of a junior class member they expect you to volunteer for the after prom party hosted by community , my wife went to the planning meetings and helped set it up.. It really showed how well behaved and polite the kids are. I think 110 kids attended the party. They said everybody from prom came and the few junior seniors that didn’t attend came to the party. Community and businesses had donated about 10,000 or more worth of prizes and door prizes. Every kid won something. The big prizes were two 60 inch TVs one for junior and one f

  13. Bit the bullet on a new tractor hauler today. I liked my little Half ton Chevy but every time I hooked up to it with the trailer I was pulling close to 10k. So wanting a bigger back seat I went looking for a 3/4 ton crew cab for the bigger cab. I knew I would be loosing gas mileage in going from a 5.3 to the bigger 6.6 gas gm gas and lower gears well almost getting a silver gas job I ended up liking this Red Diesel better. So I pick it up on Tuesday

  14. ...got ''roped' in to do the last 15 days , on the "Toll Gate '' of the 'local' high country Stations open road period...(December 26th....thru Easter Monday )...this gives Folk from here and overseas visitors...(waaaaay down this year due to some "flu ' epidemic..... ) a chance to see how real people work in large remote "Stations " ( Farms)....with not only the weather, terrain against them...but a plunge downward in primary produce returns ...and idiotic new "Farming Reforms " being brought in by the Socialists ....however, the tourists don't see that aspect of farming life

  16. Finished until Saturday morning. I am going to mill about .02” off the face to leave a perfectly smooth and clean face. This is personal preference of mine. The face is good on it already.

  19. The verdict is. If you don't resist arrest you most likely don't have anything to worry about. Whether the officer made a bad decision or not in all these cases would not be a question at all if not for running and resisting

  20. I picked up my new round baler today. Saved from the junkman. Its in decent condition for the age. Even has twine in the can. I was told the old guy that had it used it close up to when he died, stored it upstairs on the hay mow drive floor. I'm looking forward to trying it this summer, maybe about 5 or 10 bales worth, just to see if it will make a bale. I suspect that it may have been sold new by our local Allis dealer, but there are no dealer stickers on it. It lived about 18 miles away from me. .

  23. Wheels at Wanaka is a show held every two years in Wanaka ,Central Otago. It basically is several shows all put together in one 50 acre location, cars ,motorbikes ,trucks ,tractors , earthmovers ,tractor and truck pulling and many other displays. It is the only show of its type in NZ. Here are just a sample of what was on display. I know how much you guys like photos .Sorry some of the photography is not the best. Hopefully IH Kiwi will have something to add. Marty,NZ

  24. Thought for fun I would post a "Tractor for the Day" picture. I am not sure how often yet, will see what the response is. I will run out of tractors if I do it too often. So the first one is the 1486. First picture is one of ours and the second is one that I really like but have no clue who owns it or where it lives. Please feel free to add your 1486's to this thread.

  25. I spent the afternoon and evening today building this engine stand. Tired of wrestling engines around on the floor or bench with the cherry picker. I'll put her to the test next week with a DT466. I used a 60:1 speed reducer and a 2" shaft. Two rigid casters and one swivel with two locking feet on the rear corners. I'll have to make adapters as I go but at least I have the stand built now.

Last fall I picked up a deere combine to make some straw with from a guy who was cleaning up there farm and we somehow got talking about tractors and I said I am looking for something to cultivate my 3 acers of produce with, he mentioned that they have a old C with a belly cultivator on it that's been sitting in a shed last ran in 91 that they would probably re home so me and a buddy bought it together and brought it home. We changed oil and refilled the coolent and swapped out a wrecked rear tire cleaned the tank and carb and to the field it goes. It's so original it still has IH stamped plu

  29. The 826 is the second tractor in my tractor of the day series. I have no rhyme or reason to the order of choosing the tractors. A week went by fast since I decided to do this. Loved all the participation on the 1486's. So here we go again with the 826. The first picture is ours. Dad bought it on a farm sale with around 900 hours on it when it was only a few years old. It had an M&W turbo put on soon after. It was our big tractor until Dad bought a 1066 in 1980. I spent hundreds of hours on this 826 over the years. It has treated us well and has not had the engine touched yet with 8000 hour

  30. So the state saw fit to notify me my CDL med cert expires on the 18th. thanks for the timely heads up. I'll get it done. Call the clinic, I need to schedule a CDL phys. When was the last time you were here? ......................I dunno, my last CDL phys? Well, that was two years ago. You need a checkup before we can schedule your phys. Excuse me? Did I hear you say I need to have a physical before you can schedule my physical???? Well, when we haven't seen someone for over a year, we need to give them a checkup before we can do anything else. I haven't

  31. Local dairy farmer dropped this off in January (they tried hauling wet hay) and have been working on it on and off and finally finished it. Original frame was 4"X2"X1/8" . I used 4"X2"x1/4" sandwiched between 4"X1/4" flat bar. Sectioned the coupling pole with 3" sch40 pipe.

  34. My buddies and I pulled and installed quite a few motors under a big crab apple tree beside dad's barn in the early 70s. Didn't build my first garage till 77. Funny though most, as this pic shows, were mopigs. 🤪 Direct Connection on the licence plate. That one ain't!

  39. So in one of the blacksmithing threads a couple weeks ago while everyone was talking about stuff @m.c.farmerboy mentioned having a large anvil. We had messaged back and forth about some other things before so I sent him a message asking about it. I enjoyed trying to figure out what everyone had in that thread and figured I’d get some more details and do the same for this one. Well, long story short, we came to an agreement and I own that anvil now. I had it shipped via Fastenal freight. Big thanks to MC Farmerboy for a new friendship and a nice transaction. I have always been impressed in any

  40. This my 826. It was bought by my grandfather. I received it after his passing. I replaced the 16.9-38 with 18.4-38's and repainted it. I love the Hydro and completely understand why this was my grandfather's favorite tractor.

Was looking over photos of some stuff I have designed and built over the years with the help of my crew, This was a 6 way dozer blade 48" wide we custom built it for a 48" wide skid steer, It was going to work on some walking trail system in the southen states the design is very similar to a D-3 CAT dozer
