  2. Great legacy ! That 1466 still looks new ! I wouldn't let it leave either but I had to ask. My shed thinks it needs a nice 1466 blackstripe . lol Tony
  3. Happy Birthday Fellas ! Hope it was a great day ! Tony
  4. Beautiful pictures ,Equipment like new, speaks well for your farm. Would you consider letting the 1466 black stripe come live out west ? Tony
  5. My Nieghbor Eddie Back in February 2021 getting the 856 and Freeman baler ready for the season . I remember this girl when bought new ,was worked hard on a cotton and hay farm , owner used every inch of her then retired her as he switched to grapes and did not need it. It sat behind a shed in ill health for years , original owner dies , Eddie saves her from the scrapper and or the air board ! Buys it from Estate. Gave her a good amount of TLC and she is now an everyday worker and chore tractor. He also knew her from new and saw what she went through and I think she has a permanent home . He does not pamper them but she gets what she needs. tony

  14. Back in early 50’s when my Dad decided to start breaking some of his native pastures to farm , He bought a Farmall M and a MM UTN as his workhorses. The M was equipped with propane at dealer and MM was factory LP . He used MM for tillage and the M for planting , cultivating , cotton picker conversion . the LA Case was my Grandfather in law’s and my late father in Laws tony
  15. 10/9/21 Return of Pioneer Days Parade held Main Street of Paso Robles , Ca . Central Coast area of Ca . After bowing out to Covid last year. Beautiful fall day for a parade ! I took two of my older girls , the 52 MM UTN LP and the 1945 LA Case LP , John Domingo's my baler helper drove the LA and I drove the MM Loved picking out our own “Ray54” from the crowed as we rode by and heard his cheering ! Parade route was longer and appeared to be many more spectators then pre covid. I was able to capture few pictures and I will try posting them all accept videos which is a whole different endeavor . Most of pictures are before or after parade once parade started not much chance for pictures on my part. Rather then trying to narrating pictures, I'll answer any question of pictures. tony
