Are you plowing the same size lands as the larger tractors? Here in Ont. the antique classes ( mounted and drag plows ) plow lands that are 50ft X 200ft. You don't see many garden tractors at county matches but will get the occasional one or two out. Not sure of the land size for the big boys. Mostly in the USA they have "plow days" where they just plow some land for the fun of it and follow behind each other til they run out of light or land or both. I have never seen a notice for competitive plowing down there but it might exist.
Your pics are excellent and the plowing all looks good. Your finish with "George" looks very good in the picture. How did it score? Do you use an opening split like here?
Thanks for posting the pics.......Dave
