I used to watch it all the time,but just for those shows.
I love Old Iron, trains etc. Even enjoy that campfire cooking show.
They seem to be on less & less everyday.

The need to rename it "Horse" TV now.
No offense to our 4 legged ride-able friends or those that love them, I don't think I could stay on top of one if I had too.
It's impressive to watch rodeos and calf roping,
but, I couldn't care less about grooming before the show or proper barrel training techniques.
I'm sure I'll be sorry when I'm abducted by a "Dr. Evil" type and he makes me
slalom thru barrels, delivering fake mail on my trusty steed in order to save the world somehow, but until then... Yawn.

I watch it all time Family type shows. There are some shows that i do change channels for. They have my vote. Maybe someone with large GT show could get them to do it.

Ten years ago when the tractor shows were reasonably new, I watched them all the time. I could quote most of the Classic Tractors episodes. When RFDTV gets some new material I'll start watching again.
I like horses about as much as Christopher Reeves. :-(

Know what you mean, very little going on over there, they had some very good coverage of vintage tractors, and other things, but seem to have gotten away from that. I don't know if they take amateur films or not, looks like it would be better than having all horse all the time.

This is just my $.02, but I think that sounds more like something that Heins Doofensmirtz would do than Dr. Evil...I'm just sayin'...

I like it, but I could do with a few less horse shows too. I really like that Baxter Black fellow and his stories. The classic tractor series is nice.

I like the old Nashville music shows they show like Porter Wagoner,The Wilburn Brothers and Pop Goes the Country.You can see a lot of the legends when they were in their prime.

I just wish the would start back on more Tractor shows also.
