    The Dog Thread

    We need a dog thread. Please feel free to add as you see fit. New dogs, old dogs, dogs with tractors, whatever. Pictures are encouraged! I'll start. The first is our ~9 year old Australian Cattle dog-Corgi mix. She's her Momma's girl. My wife adopted her when she was single and she knows her job -protect the family. She's fiercely protective of both my wife and daughter. Put a new knee ligament in her last winter. She slipped in the icy tractor tracks in the yard in January last year and ruptured her equivalent of an ACL. It was a long 6-month recovery; she was pretty much crated to keep her off it. She seems good as new now though. She loves those balls the most, she can run and jump again after the surgery, and she'll chase that thing for hours. The second is my English Setter. He is the puppy of another bird dog in the family. He's a sweet dog and hardwired for birds. This dog puts in miles every day. He's dad's boy and he's two separate dogs indoors and outdoors. Indoors he likes to be in the quietest room and only cares about being petted. Outdoors, he couldn't care less about affection. All he wants to do outside is run and chase birds.
  2. Went to the state fair today. Most things are the same from year to year. I myself like to visit the 4H and the FFA tractors. My wife likes to check out the photography at both of those places as well the main photography area for the fair. And of course the fabric and threads area in the varied industries building. We stream lined it as we're not big crowd people but still wanna see stuff. Main thing we noticed in photos and tractor restorations, exhibitors were down in numbers big time. On the plus side, the quality in tractor restorations was up. The last few years some of them didn't look to hot. But this year they were good. First stop, the 4H building. Some good pictures but one really stood out. Took a picture to share it here. Then outside for tractors and equipment. Everything looked nice, but the old Oliver combine just had the cool factor for me. The little Ford lawnmower was roped off so it was difficult to get a good picture. Next stop was the FFA building. Looked at the pictures and saw a little girl that must've hit her head. Paramedics wrapped her head and she'll be fine. Then outside for tractors. Some odd ones out here for sure. The last tractor is a SMTA and a guy looking at it, his voice sounded familiar to me. So I stopped to talk. I recognized his face but no name. He called me by my first name. I was shocked. He bought a SM on a consignment sale in Colo, Iowa a few years ago. Was leaving the next day on vacation but didn't want his tractor to set there unattended for a week. I offered to just drive it, he said ok. We checked some fliuds, I stopped for some gas and headed for Marshalltown. Was a fun day for me. He's also a SMTA nut and has a rare one, so we had plenty to talk about. And no his rare one is NOT for sale. His dad bought it new so he said it'll never leave. And I can definitely respect that. I do have the ok to stop and see it again and get the serial number. We were next to the Iowa arts and crafts building so we looked inside. Then we headed to the fabric and threads area. Lots of nice things in there. Including my wife's hand knitted teddy bear. It netted her a red ribbon. Just for fun I'm including a picture of what got the blue ribbon and the presidents award. After that we walked up the long hill to the photography building. You have to be judged in before you get to exhibit. My wife got one photo in and it was considered HONORABLE MENTION. She also took a picture of the statistics poster. Lots of pictures submitted but not many actually were displayed. One last stop, the chainsaw carver guys finished products. Cool stuff here to. My wife wears a fit bit. We made just shy of 6000 steps on the pedometer. That was our day at the fair. Hope you all enjoyed the visual tour.
  3. Well, this is a tractor forum😋😂🤣
  4. Here’s some pics of the ‘dealership’ they have created for a movie being filmed locally, sorry I couldn’t get better pics, there is a MFWD 5488 and a 2wd 5088, some Magnums and a 574
  5. The first one in the link is a old cabover Freightliner. Just in nice shape.And possibly headed to Florida if reasonable trucking can be found. The other two were just there when I stopped to look at a trailer for the business. It just wasn't good enough so I passed. But grabbed a few pictures while I was there. The old Fleetstar had a 290 Cummins, I THINK, and a 9 or 10 speed, twin screw, and air brakes. It obviously didn't run as the brake canisters were pinned to release the brakes. http://m.diamondtrailsales.com/List/Truck/ForSale/28327281
  6. Some friends of mine painted this. They're not in the business but should be in my opinion. I asked for permission to share. They said yes as long as I didn't reveal my source. They're definitely not the toot your own horn kind of guys. My kind of guys. 👍👌. So I'm happy to share these with you.
  7. Here's another one. Friend of mine sent it to me so I'm sharing. It's kinda a early one. THREE DIGIT SERIAL NUMBER😁! https://carbondale.craigslist.org/grd/6795139331.html
  8. Here's the latest creation to come off the wife's turbo needles. And here's the backstory. Last Christmas (2017) my wife gave away several small bears. When we delivered two to the secretaries at Central Trailer Service in Altoona, Iowa, the place we get our trailers worked on, the service manager made this statement, Where's ours? So my wife's brain went into overdrive. Especially after we learned more about him. He's a Harley guy and his nickname is The Kool Aid Man. You'll understand after you see the pictures. So here's Harley, the Kool Aid bear. She had no pattern to follow for the sweater, made completely from scratch.
  9. I received some pictures from a friend last night. They aren't the type to blow their own horn so names and location will NOT be disclosed. So I'm gonna share the pictures but no particulars. Please share your thoughts. I will let them know. Thanks in advance.
  10. Awhile back we discussed on here that a great topic idea would be to post pictures of your equipment that correspond to today's date. So, let's see pictures of your pride and joy. Working, playing, restored or in work clothes. I will start with my 1966 Farmall 1206.
  11. Wife and I were reminiscing this morning about when your young you want time to go faster and now that we're older we wish it would slow down. And a few milestones came to mind I thought a few of you IRON HEADS might enjoy. So here goes. Five years ago today I found my wife's dad's 756 back. Had to wait till Monday to make the call to buy it but it's been five years already. Unbelievable. And the coolest part about finding it on 11-11-2013. First off it's Veteran's Day. It's also my wife's dad's mom's birthday. Hope you can digest all that. We've tuned it up a bit as the pictures will show. Prior to that I landed a odd piece. A Farmall 560, serial number 530, that's been converted to a road roller or asphalt packer. Last time we had it to a IH featured show, I couldn't get away from it. EVERYONE wanted to know more. And here's it's story. Obviously it was produced at Farmall Works Rock Island, Illinois. Then shipped, probably on a skid without wheels, to Marion, Ohio to Huber Bros to be converted. It spent it's working days in Pennsylvania. Upon its retirement a friend bought and had it shipped back to Grundy Center, Iowa. And I found it at his place while picking up his junk tires because he was selling his acreage. A 15 year search also came to a end. I reunited a matched pair a 7x12 Heider wagons after approximately 38.5 years of separation. Separated spring of 1975, reunited September 2013. They were purchased new together for Pioneer seed corn. They lived east of Reinbeck, Iowa and hauled seed corn to the plant on the east side of town. They both sport twin cylinder hoists vs the common single cylinder. We used them that fall as the pictures will show. Made 13 trips with them before the day job started calling😖😢😏. But man what a good time. The first trip to the elevator was the best. It was like going back in time with my trusty 826 on the front. Lots of looks and comments. And speaking of my trusty 826, it came to Iowa in May of 2013. It came from Kankakee, Illinois. Left about 6:30 in the morning. Drove 630 miles. And got home about 6:30 that evening. Of all my tractors, she would be my favorite. Definitely not the rarest but the favorite. Hope you enjoyed my ramblings.
  12. The guys that farm around our acreage farm with green equipment. And the guy that farms across the road from us also uses green equipment. And when Maxx is outside and they are around he absolutely goes nuts. Barking continuously and running back and forth along the fence of his kennel. It's hard to get him to quiet down. Well we let him out today and some red equipment was using the field. People were parking there I'm assuming due to a wet spot. And he was a completely different dog. Barked a few times and we called him off and he walked away. And this has happened before. During harvest when all colors go by, he definitely barks more when the green ones to by. So it's obvious he definitely has a dislike for green paint. Here is Uncle Maxx.
  13. Cranked up this morning and headed towards town. This morning was fuel morning. Was driving somewhat out the side window as usual😀. Anyway I spied a load of yellow and white paint. So we had to go check it out. The owner was pretty sure they were sold. And assured me they wouldn't be scrapped so we moved on. After taking a few pictures of course.👍
  14. Took Wednesday and Thursday off this week. Mainly cause their wasn't much trucking to do. And second they were the first decent days I had a chance to catch up on a few things around home. With all the rain we've been getting, mowing the yard was one of my top priorities. When it was nice we were gone and when we were home it was raining. I should've baled it and sold it as it was out of control. I checked a couple of my wagons that are outside. They shouldn't be but that's a story for another day. Looked in two of them and the words SWIMMING POOL come to mind. That wasn't gonna cut it obviously. And at that time they were predicting heavy rain for us. So it was time to move them, get the fronts higher than the rears to insure the water run out. Here's the end result. 3 double reach IH #52 running gears. Front box is a Sears flarebox. Second one is a 6x10 Stanhoist built IH box. And the third is a 6x12 Stanhoist built IH box. I pulled them with my trusty Gehl 4400 skid loader. Stout little machine. I'd be lost without it.
  15. Something else happened the other day when we shuffled the local tractor deck as FarmallTom said it. The BIG IH as another friend calls it now has 7 digits showing on the odometer. We rolled past the million mile mark on the way to Baxter, Iowa that morning. And I couldn't have been happier to have it happen hauling tractors. I don't remember right now exactly when we got it but it was fresh in off lease. And the odometer that day read 548,XXX. So we're officially over the million mile mark. And I've put almost half a million miles on it myself. Some of my friends and acquaintances wonder when we're gonna trade up? But we're not. I've heard enough horror stories about these junk new trucks. This one is here to stay barring a crash or something unexpected.
  16. Started digging things out yesterday. The Heiders were first. The two Jet Co wagons were at the in laws so they were retrieved next. Then the Calhoun wagon came out into the light. It dates back to the 1950's if memory serves me correctly. And I put the finishing touches, for now, on the 756 gas. This morning I went outside at 5:30 and cranked up the power washer. My buddy showed up around 8:30 to help drive stuff over. The one that helped with the makeover. Couldn't believe it was the same tractor. A good bath did wonders for it. We drove some over in the am. And hauled a load over in the pm. Met fellow forums member DTfan. Nice guy. Didn't get to visit much as he had to go to work. Maybe we can get acquainted tomorrow sometime. And yes the trio of 756's are there. Didn't get pictures today but will tomorrow. There should be time then. My wife snapped a couple pictures before we left this morning. More pictures coming in the next few days.
  17. Extreme Makeover 756 Style Bought this thing late last fall. Wasn't in a rush and I told my trucker that. I didn't want salt or brine on it and my trucker had a crawler going to one of the Dakotas and he didn't wanna go there during bad winter months as well. We were all on the same page. Long story short it finally arrived the other day. And the last two weekends we've been giving it it's makeover. I'm hoping to have it together good enough for the Marshalltown show next weekend. I've knowingly made a few mistakes along the way. I used hex head bolts on the fender extensions bolting them to the platform. It currently has two 100 pound suitcase weights hanging on it. I think 75's are correct? And I don't think I'll have time to switch the implement tires out for some rib tires. And the battery might be wrong. I ordered one the other day but it has yet to arrive. And the loader was plumbed into the outlets on the left side of the seat. If I run out of time it might just get a hose put on So I don't loose the fluid. Plugs would be better but time is the issue here. So the correct police might have their comments, but I'm aware. It saved me a trip to town today for 6 bolts. As stated, I'd like it in Marshalltown at the show next weekend. Let me know what you guys think. Do you approve of disapprove of my work? Thanks. Disclaimer. The first four pictures were taken at the guys place where I bought it. You guys might see some green tractors in the background. He buys and sells all colors. Just wanted to clarify as there are no Junk Deere tractors in my stable. I have a friend that has a saying. I'LL BUY RED TILL I'M DEAD. That pretty much is how I am. And I'll be adding a few more pictures later. My wife hasn't taken any pictures since the battery tray, weights, and weight bracket have been added.
  18. Headed down to the Iowa State Fair today. We normally go when the tractors are on the grand concourse. This year we changed things up. Decided to go on veterans day. And we were sure to attend the parade honoring all veterans. Let me tell you it was a moving experience. Everyone that was able stood for the singing of the national anthem. One young mom kept her young son from sitting down. And we stood close to a veteran. He's in the bottom left corner in one of the pictures. Their wasn't a full size flag that went by that he wasn't on his feet and saluting OLD GLORY. It was really cool. And veterans saluting veterans was neat to. The atmosphere was electric. The guy driving the Ford tractor got the crowd amped up to. It definitely was a good time and something I'll never forget. Wife had a surprise to. Her knitted teddy bear had a blue ribbon hanging on it. And I added a serial number to my 826 registry. I also found a Louisville Super M in the FFA tractors. Seen plenty of Super M's there over the years, but this was the first Louisville. First place was a 856 narrow front. And it looked extremely nice. Should've taken more pictures. By the time we got to the tractors we were hot and ready to go. The veterans parade was by far the highlight of our day. Thanks for your service to all past, present, and future vets.
  19. It all started yesterday. Got up Friday morning thinking it would be a run of the mill day. Man was I wrong. My day started with putting a new set of tires on my wife's pickup. It was overdue but that's not relevant here. Wife had a hair appointment at noon and we got groceries and ran errands after that. One of our stops was our vet. And that set the stage. They had placed a truck in the parking lot accepting donations for pet food for disaster relief victims. And it's a free for all. You can donate or take from it depending on your situation. And for those of you who don't know us, if pets are in need, we get involved. Headed out to our local farm store, picked up some cat and dog supplies to donate. Put it in the truck about 2pm. By 4pm we'd got a text it was gone. So we hatched a plan to donate some more. So today was a busy day. Got up and headed up to Reinbeck, Iowa. That's where we get our dog food. They were closed and that never happens. But luckily someone showed up to do some banking. So we raided there supply. And ordered some more. Informed them of our intent to donate 99% of what we got. Thought it was neat. The guy had to ask the owner but thought they might donate some to the cause. And when they placed the next order they were gonna ask if they're supplier would donate some as well. So things are in motion. Next stop, after making our donation, Des Moines, Iowa. My wife wanted to take a hand knit teddy bear to be judged and exhibited at the Iowa State Fair. Headed back to Marshalltown. Wife wanted to see how much was gone. Some was but not all. Then it was supper time. Stopped at the local Maid Rite. One of the things Marshalltown is known for. Get some sandwiches to go. On my way out I held the door for two women, complete strangers. One of them thanked me and said she knew I was gonna do that. I told her we do things different here. She was from southern California and said I know, you Iowa guys are wonderful. And those are her words not mine. And on a side note, those new tires already have 250+ miles on them. Most of them today.😃 It was a busy day but feels really good to help people that really need it.
  20. Found this last night on my nightly rounds. The serial number got my attention. But the listing didn't have any pictures so I emailed asking for some. With a $5900 dollar asking price I personally expected something quite a bit better than this. I'm not affiliated with this in any way shape or form. I just don't understand how people can treat equipment like that. And it's to bad with such a low serial number. Anyway just thought I'd share some pictures of the 46th 756 off the line. So sad. 😢
  21. I thought I would show you guys some pictures of our haying equipment. We grow irrigated and dryland alfalfa/grass and straight alfalfa hay for our own beef cows. Whatever we don't need for feed we sell to local ranchers. My dad and I share the New Holland 1475 hydroswing hooked on a 1086. It seems to lay down more than enough acres for us to stay on top of. The vermeer rake is mine and the wheel rake is my dad's, both hitched to 706s. Dad has a br780a baler hitched to a 1086 and I have a br7090 hitched to my 186. We then have a couple of 1086s with DuAl 3100 loaders we use to haul the hay and stack with. I also make a few thousand square bales with a JD 346 to sell to horse people. There is also a picture is a stand of 3rd cutting alfalfa last September. Finally is a picture hauling hay off the field with my 98 Chevy w/12v cummins. I sold that pickup last winter.
  22. ....The Southern Iowa Fair. Some friends of mine requested I bring some tractors to the Southern Iowa Fair in Oskaloosa, Iowa. IH is the feature this year. Wasn't sure if was gonna work as I was having some oil leaks fixed on my truck. The parts will be cheap compared to the labor on this one. But enough about that. Back to the the tractors. I got the call Friday evening the truck was done. So Saturday was gonna be a mad dash to get ready. I used reverse psychology. If I had the tractors ready the truck wouldn't be ready. So I got up early and got started. My SMTA was in the way. Popped right off. The 54 SMLP took right off to. The 656 L.P. needed a battery installed. It then started right up to. The surprise I got was the 756 L.P. with a junk battery. Hunted one up, picked it up in route to picking up the truck and all was good. It now starts to. The Navy H lit right up to. By the time I had everything ready to go it was 1:30pm. With the two detours involved it was 3:15pm when we got there. After getting unloaded wife and I met a nice older couple. Found out he was a L.P. tractor guy. Mainly Minneapolis Moline but that's ok. And his wife really wanted the full story on the yellow H. Ended up being there a hour and a half. But they say time flies when you're having fun. And we were definitely having fun. I was also assured they'd be safe on our way out the gate. A gentleman that works at the fairgrounds also lives across the street. And there are cameras and or sensors that let him know if they have any unwanted visitors. I wasn't to worried but it is nice to know. One comical thing happened on the way down. A guy was mowing with his GREEN lawnmower. Stopped for a second to take in the view and gave us a big wave as we went by.
  23. Headed over to Garwin, Iowa today for their annual July 4th show. It's always held the first Saturday in July regardless of what day of the week the 4th falls on. Just works better. The Allis guys were the clear winners today. But a collector lives a few miles away so he does a good job bringing stuff in. The Ford guys took second. And IH was third. I normally do better but my trucks in the shop. So this year it was one tractor and two wagons. A 756 and a pair of 6x12 Jet Co barge boxes on Westendorf running gears. The front wagon my father in law bought new. The second one we picked up at a sale last fall. Had a chance at it a few years ago but passed. It resurfaced last fall So we grabbed it. Kinda like pulling two wagons that match. The H without badges was serial number 14776. Somewhat early so I thought I'd mention it.
  24. I reached a milestone in my life today. 20 years doing the same job. And that's quite an accomplishment for me. Out of high school I hopped from job to job like a frog in a pond. I didn't stay in one place very long. When I started this job I kinda thought it might be just for the summer. After the first day I wasn't even sure about just for the summer. But I pushed on and suddenly 20 years has gone by. So I decided on a tractor ride to commemorate the day. Told a few people but not many as their was another ride pretty close by. Didn't want it to become a competition I simply wanted to do my own thing. Simple as that. Long story short 2 other guys showed up. And I honestly questioned whether we should even go. Asked the peanut gallery what they thought. They were still eager to go so off we went. And man am I glad we did. We had an absolute blast of a time. No schedule to keep. We could do whatever we wanted whenever we wanted. The one guy brought his old jeep as our escort vehicle. He was having back and leg issues and was more comfortable in the jeep. I drove my favorite 826. A friend that came from 1.5 hours east of me drove my SMTA. And my neighbor /friend drove his jeep. As stated, we had one whiz-banger of a good time. The jeep has military history. Iowa forestry history. And our local fire department history. It made it to western Nebraska before returning home so to speak. It's a pretty cool little ride.
  25. Only one to report. Watched this 1066 sell today. Rattle can paint job and wrong fenders. They dropped the hammer on it at $8500. They advertised it as restored and 4700 hours.
