Yes sir, me and tractors got something in common. We like fresh air, sunshine, and the smell of fresh soil. No roof over my head when I'm working.

Yep, same here. Hard to beat watching 3 14's roll the sod over, or 7' feet of waist deep grass fall to a well-sharpened sickle, all while listening to the roar of a Farmall 4 cylinder. And the smell of dust and horse sweat and leather is seared into my memory. I spent many years behind a team before I had a tractor. If you have the time, it's a real pleasure to work behind a team when you enjoy them and they work well. I kept a team up until about 2 years ago, mostly just for pulling a harrow, spreading manure, and hauling hay and firewood out. Finally just got to where it was easier and faster to go start one of the tractors than catch the horses and harness them, then hook them up and then go to work. I will say, that a good team of horses, with a 13 oliver plow, can easily out-plow an Allis Chalmers B in a day's time. I know, I've done it. :mrgreen:

That's awesome. The Amish around here still till the soil by 'horse' power. Sometimes, I'll pull the truck over and watch for awhile. Nice, hard-working people.
