  1. Nothing finer than a black bonneted Pete. Couple of questions ,Do the Feds pester you much about logbooks? Over here we usually check the old girls aren't sitting down every couple of hours,once they've been in a crate they're generally pretty well behaved. Much of a problem over there? Might be a dairy cow thing over here,anyway keep those pics coming.
  2. Yes they are from Australia I have a self propelled 12' cut that come from our farm.I can remember working on it when we were kids.We use to bag off bags and then use to tip.them off in lines across the paddock. Had a Wisconsin engine on it .Steel wheels as well

    Mike I actually said I didn't,t know that we had so many mosques in NZ,not that I was stunned at how many there was.To be honest it has never bothered me if they want to come to NZ If they want to build a mosque good luck to them. As for that fuckwit Australian senator my old man always said if you can't say anything good about someone don,t bother saying anything.The other thing that surprises me is that if you couldn't,t see them clapping down on semi autos after this circus you really should get out more.I was a member of a target rifle club and really it wouldn't,t make any difference to me if they tightened up on semi autos

    A nutter stormed into a mosque with 2 ar15,s on a Friday afternoon packed with 500 people praying and let rip. Killed 40 and then drove 6miles to another mosque and did the same thing killing another 10 people. Another 40 odd in hospital.seems he didn't,t like muslims. Watching this on TV last night and a couple of things struck me,one was I didn't know we had so many mosques in New Zealand and the second was if we were able to carry something maybe he wouldn't,t have got to 50 people.Pistols are illegal over here unless your in a pistol club. It will be interesting to see where he got the semi auto from because if they aren't,t banned you have to have a bloody good reason to have one.Mike Newman would know more about this than I would. A sad day for Christchurch.A lot of people will be missing loved ones.I think we might have been a wee bit niave to think that this type of crap would ever happen over here.
  5. Worked on a wheat farm out the back of mukinbudin. The road we lived on was rabbit proof fence road.you could still see the old fence along the road.Worked out for there for 5 years,you only get 8 for murder
  6. I,m looking for 32" tyres for my wd40.The old girl has cast rims so not easy to change rim sizes.Either new tyres or good used tyres would be okay.18.4 x32 or 15 x32 would fit okay.Golng to try miller tyre in the morning hoping somebody can help
  7. Yeah that,s us.Had a great time.Got back into Houston tonight.3200 miles later.By the way love the black pete.
  8. She,s been a hard couple of weeks. Really enjoyed Alabama,can now put faces to a lot of the members. I now have a complete wardrobe of IH gear. I,ve also sorted out the parts side of this hobby.I bought some parts (small) so that was a bonus. The last but most important person I must thank is my poor suffering wife who has been dragged across Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska,Iowa, Illinois and then down to Alabama for 4 days looking at tractors.The only thing she insisted on was Nashville for 3days. Pretty good deal I thougt
  9. Trot dairy sorry I was thinking of ddt when I said it didn't,t show up in the milk.What I meant was every cow in NZ has been tested and the one in the 1400 never showed up.I think they found it tracing back from the original infection where he had bought some cows from a couple of years before.
  10. Trot dairy they are talking about culling every cow on any farm that even has only one cow test positive. I think I said about the dairy farm a few miles from us that had 1 cow show up out of 1400. 1400 down the road.didn,t even show in the milk.It can all be traced back to two dairy farms down south.I,Ve been over here for a fortnight so I haven,t really been following it closely at home.They are still talking about compensation for everyone that have to get rid of cattle.I think this govt wants to be the first country in the world to get rid of this disease.We shall wait and see.Everything else they touch turns to crap so Icant really see any difference here.
  11. Harry you went through our town,Rakaia where the big salmon is not unless you went around the gorge.There are,not too many roads to pick from.The farm IWork on is an irrigated cropping far down seafield way right in behind Anzco meats packing plant.They have a dairy farm on the end of the cropping farm.I don't have anything to do with the cows only spread fertiliser on the farm.Ashburton is our main town for shopping.Hope you had a good time there it,s a farming town so it relies on the farmers having a bit of money to spend which is sort of funny because everyone (dairy ,sheep beef,deer and cropping ) is doing okay at the moment.

  12. Mike sorry to hear about your problems with mycoplasma bovis.I think it,s going to get a lot worse before it gets better especially if the bloody govt,s involved.Frank Peters is just down the road from us and he had 1 cow with it.1400 are going down the road.Anyway keep your chin up there's always next years roundup
  13. Sweet ride and sweet load
