Well it took my mom until now to drive a tractor. Yesterday afternoon we put her on our newly acquired 2000 522xi that has power steering and a foot control for forward and reverse. For some reason she has a little phobia of jumping on a 8 speed tractor. Had to snap a pic as she was driving by. Now hopefully dad will have some help with the mowing duties around the property!

Great pic. After Dad passed mom started mowing with his rider. She mowed until she was 85 and enjoyed every minute of it.

At 65 I had to read your post. Mom looks like she'll be taking over the Horse soon! If you play
your cards right, hopefully (with a straw hat) Mom'll take over the gas can too! :thumbs:

Years ago, my wife took over my 1st WH, rear discharge and towin' a sweeper.
I was never dissappointed..................ahhhhhhhh! Now back to the baseball game! :thumbs:

My teenage boys soon took over the snow plowin' chore........nice! Now back to the NFL! :thumbs:

A neighbor once told me, "I don't want to say much but, when you're not home your two boys
race down the road on your tractors." Oh well........................back to the pool! :thumbs:

Now I have to "train" the grandsons how to drive.......back to school! :dancingbanana:

Sure start her out with the top of the line. LOL

She may get to like the horses and start taking them away from you and send you to your room
