Today I gave my 8 year old son snow plowing lessons. He's been asking for a while so today things just worked out well to do it. He gets plain driving lesson now and then but this was the first time in the snow. I probably enjoyed it just as much as him I bet. These are the days a father never forgets!

Fine young man on a really nice plow tractor.  Would like to have that one myself.  Now he probably thinks he can get chicks because of his cool ride!

IMO everyone should do this with they're Young ones.Riding around with my Grandpa on the Big Tractor "Ford 8n :rolling: " was one of my favorite memories of me and my Grandpa from when I was young.

Even though the old 8N wasn't the biggest on the farm it was the one that I remember because Me and Grandpa drove it together.

 

 

They will remember it for the rest of they're lives.

 

 

Looks like you both had a good time. :big_hug:

Looks like some good father-son time. A time that neither will forget. I have been trying to teach my son a bit too, gets quite interesting.

Great job Dad! He will remember this all of his life, and you will cherish this time as he gets older. I really like to see father and son or daughter doing something together. Nice tractor and be careful now...... you might come home from work and find all the plowing and tractor jobs done.... !                                        Roger

I agree it helps learning early.  Heck by the time I was 12 I was running a combine in the field by myself with my grandfather running the other one ahead of me.  They were not big or modern but that was a fun time.

Good job!  Your young man will never forget that first time you let him push the snow off.

Look's like fun, but if your not careful you'll loose all your seat time only to be replaced with a younger model. He'll never forget it.
