This Tractor's Sexy

This song came to my mind this week as I was on the farm. I got to ride on this monster tractor with my brother Dave. The tractor sort of drives itself through the field, dropping seeds just a couple of inches from the fertilizer that was applied at a previous time and recorded on a computer.  Kenny Chesney - "She Thinks My Tractor's Sexy"


Here's the beast - all connected to the planter that has 16 planter boxes for dropping the grain.


Just one arm of the planter. 


Looking back with my bird's eye view.


Looking ahead through the windshield - long rows of very flat ground with fertile soil.


Inside the cab, a computer tells Dave how many seeds are dropping and shows the map the tractor is traveling, as it follows the line of the fertilizer.

You might not think it's so fantastic, but I guarantee you that Dave thinks his tractor is sexy....he spends many hours in the field driving it!

We are back in Texas as you are reading this, so I'll be getting pictures posted soon of the wedding. Hope you are having a great week!
