ABC Wednesday - Old

Its working days over this old tractor is gently disintegrating. If a member of the David Brown Owners Club spied this he might take it on as a renovation project. The company was an innovative builder of tractors between 1939 and 1988 and in its heyday this tractor may have looked like this-
I found this picture on an antique tractors site and its owner says it was the favourite tractor in the Netherlands "Dit is een simpele trekker en makkelijk te bedienen voor weinig geld en zo sterk als een beer!" (Simple and easy to operate for little money and strong as a bear). But elsewhere down on the farm the little heifer
is finding an old bath is ideal for cooling feet,  

An entry for ABC Wednesday - a journey from A to Z.

Did that cow learn from mama not to put your hooves in the water you drink? : ) What a great shot!
Love, love, love the old tractor!

Everyone needs a good foot bath once in a while.

I'm especially fond of old tractors, the more rust the better!

Learn some Filipino custom and words with my O entry. Come and see.

Old farm equipment seems to be attractive to everyone who passes. I wonder if it's harking back to our agricultural origins? Or perhaps it's simply because it's pretty.

Nifty photos. Especially that silly cow stepping into his water trough.

Carver said...

Those are all great shots. The cow is hilarious.

I can't tell whether that heifer is pleased or puzzled!

great photos - we had an old Italian tractor once - we named him Luigi.
That cow shot is wonderful

I am an old tractor aficionado and having grown up on a farm with Hereford cattle, I absolutely love the picture of the heifer with her feet in the tub! This is a classic.
