Love Wheels?

Personally, I can't get terribly excited about wheels, but apparently for some that's the case. Mostly, (and correct me if I'm wrong) it's guys whose eyes light up when a set of wheels, especially big, loud and supposedly powerful ones come into their line of sight... On that note, today's post caters to those of you who frequent this blog, but thus far haven't seen anything to get you wheely, wheely excited: Enjoy!  



  












In case you missed it; different headers.



and vintage wheels





In slower days, when Elm River was first established, farming was all about horse power...well, it still is, but I'm talking about horses that munched oats as opposed to gusseling diesel. We've come a long way, considering the fact that this year we air seeded one canola field. That would be seeding with an airplane, because it was too wet to get in with tractors. It must have worked; it's looking real good!

I'm wondering if this post will generate enough Ooh-la-laas! to garner more comments than previous posts. One can always hope!

I love the equipment, Linda, as do the boys! Thank you so much for the beautiful birthday card for Kai! As the little brother with the need to constantly assert his kiddie-power, being posed atop a huge tractor means a lot :)
