Whilst hauling mulch, to put around flowers, my mom comes out with our labs. I hop off the tractor, and jokingly ask her if she wants to drive. To my surprise, she says yes. So, she hops on, drives around, puts mulch in flower beds, etc etc. I go and grab, the one item that i wont get rid of, other than ol smoky, and my 637 Yeoman, which was my first tractor. That item, is a reel mower. The thing that started it all. Anyway, i mow with that some around the garden, and she asks how to turn the deck on on ol smoky. Now this isnt her first rodeo mowing, she used to mow 2.5 acres a week on a 2004 Jd L100. So, i turn it on, and shes off. Later that evening, shes asking whats up with the tractor she ws going to get. Now im giddy like a teenage girl. Im glad shes taking some interest in the hobby, and i hope it will progress. 

 

Thanks, God bless, Luke

Since losing that extra weight, she probably feels like doing more. Fix a tractor up so she can mow when she wants!

What tractor is she getting?

Artic cat lawn lion. She likes it because of the "truck bed" 

 

Kenny, i most likely will give her one of mine, to mow with. The artic cat comes with a plow and tire chains, so maybe if she feels up to it, she could push some snow too!
