The old guy is sort of moping around the house right now for it is winter time and he can’t go out and tinker on his tractors or play with us as much for it is too cold. With his new job and the training he comes home exhausted from all the learning… so he sits and vegges looking at tractor films on you tube or reading. The good news is it will be in the 40’s near 50 this weekend and with gasoline down in price he is going to buy some for the winter snow plowing and to play a bit.
He also plans on playing with us since it will also be dry so we should get a good long play in each day and some walks!
The old guy likes to tell how in the old days one could tell which type of tractor was coming down the road just by the sound of it.. just like each brand of car had its own sound. Sort of like us collies who dad can tell who is who by the bark… and we make sure he gets plenty of those! LOL
Here are a couple of vids so you all can tell the difference in sounds.. the first is by an Allis Chalmers WC giving what dad calls the “Allis Purr” as she pulls a plow…. when dad plows some neighbors come out to see for it is a loud purr….. sounds exactly like dad’s…..
Then a Case DC …… he says it is more of a throaty growl…..
Hopefully Dad will get his tractor fix this weekend….. we want to play…..
