    Went visiting today

    Went over by a guy I know today. He had part of his tractor collection out, so stopped by for a visit.
    This guy is a die hard IH fanatic, as you can see. He bought my 856 a few years back, and it's right now in the restoration process.
    He has all of the demonstrators in his collection, but most are not finished yet. This is a fraction of his collection, yeah, he's got it bad. Close to the entire 88 series, I don't know, he was rattling off numbers, and I was just listening.
    Anyway, we took a "few" pictures, if anyone is interested. The scout on the left, that's a diesel. Huh, I never knew they made em'... Bob's tractors (1).JPGBob's tractors (3).JPGBob's tractors (4).JPGBob's tractors (5).JPGBob's tractors (6).JPGBob's tractors (7).JPGBob's tractors (10).JPG

        Yes he sure does. He's 3rd generation. He, (Bob) graduated in 85, and took over his fathers 50 head of milk cows.
        He started building then, and today is up to 5000 head of milk cows, and just over 10,000 head total. That's cows, young stock, and calves.
        He's about the biggest farm in the county. He told me that he's building his dream, and to have his three boys take it over, when he's 65. He's building again...
        Farms with all green machines, but collects RED. His father farmed with red machines, as did his grandfather, so is the reason for his "obsession" with IH.
        This guy is one of the few around here that plants, and harvests his own crops. Most hire to come in and do the planting, and harvest. His place is like a city around his "farm." It is something to see...

        Make the best of each and every day.

            Yeah Jon, know him well. Our "company" did all the dirt work until "we" shut the doors.
            He's now doing his own dirt work. He bought a great deal of our equipment...
