  1. Great account of your recovery. Thank you for sharing your experience.
  2. Thank you for posting all of the photos. It was enjoyable to see your equipment, livestock, and farmstead in all of the seasons.
  3. Thank you for taking the time to keep us updated. It is good to read the doctor believes the disorder can be treated.
  4. “There are two spiritual dangers in not owning a farm. One is the danger of supposing that breakfast comes from the grocery, and the other that heat comes from the furnace.” ― Aldo Leopold, A Sand County Almanac
  5. Yes, waiting for a firm diagnosis is a stressful time. Stay strong and please take comfort from our support.
  6. Good luck with the M and thank you for sharing the photos. I always enjoy seeing the landscape in the background. Welcome to the Red Power Forums.
  7. I grew up on a dairy farm in northern Indiana in the 1960s (b. 1949). Like many farmers around us, we had Farmall tractors, an M and an H for most work - raising corn, baling hay, filling silo, and spreading manure. We showed our registered Guernseys at the 4-H fair and always had a couple Hereford steers to show and sell at the livestock auction which concluded the fair. The local IH dealer, Nelson Equipment in Culver, Indiana usually purchased one of the steers. I left the farm in 1967. In 1971, after 4 years at Purdue, a degree in Forestry, and an unlucky lottery draw I was drafted
  8. A nice set of photographs. Thank you for sharing.
  9. Thank you for sharing the good news. Best wishes.
  10. I have also found Tirechains.com to be a good online source. Two-link ladder chains (versus four-link) should eliminate falling into the tread and provide a less bumpy ride. I have used a set for several years of northern Michigan winters and they perform well on ice and snow. Without them the turf tires on our 584 turned into slicks with only a dusting of snow. 3/8" cross chain diameter is good.
  11. Nice words on the loss of a husband, father, and loved-one. Condolences to friends and family.
  12. We had a 55W on the dairy farm in Indiana. Your photos give me the first looks since the 1960s. Thank you for posting them. I loved the sound when it pulled hard. My dad had a custom baling operation that always seemed to have my older brother on the M and me on the wagon.
  13. Your positive outlook is admirable and encouraging. I wish you peace and well-being.
  14. Yes. May you and your family's recovery be quick. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
