Looks like you guys had a great day !


So how did the plow work ? No real shots from behind so it's hard to tell from the pictures.

Looks like the ground was a bit on the dry side for being so early !

Josh's plow looked great and it did a nice job.

It was a neat experience plowing because of being able to feel the differences in the hard and soft pack. I had actually lowered my depth wheel after plowing the garden here at the house so it wouldn't plow so deep and when we were plowing this past weekend for the most part my plow would ride on the depth wheel but there were spots where it would come up a little. I raised the depth wheel back to where it originally was just to see how the Massey would do with the plow buried a little further in the hard pack and it pulled it just fine but would still come up on the real hard pack.

The three bottom plow that Dan(Halfscale) and his dad Jim built was awesome and a very neat experience pulling something like that with a garden tractor. I have seen the plow a couple times before at shows but never thought we would get the opportunity to pull something like that.

Lots of great pictures and I'm sure a good time was had. I especially like that 5 yr old on the wheelhorse. Now that's some serious plowing!
