How fun! These are old cast iron farm equipment seats shown at a local tractor festival this past weekend. The man who owned them has over 600 of them, most dated pre-1900s. this is my daughter’s shot – I love the different colors. Yes, folks… we do have TRACTOR festivals in Texas! We also throw buffalo chips, but I won’t get into that…

    Great patterns and what interesting paint jobs they have. OK Emma so you throw buffalo chips and what else? :-)

    Thanks, Anita and Susan! You too, Peter… although I think I misled you. There are chip throwing contests in Texas, but we haven’t been to one yet. I meant WE as in Texans. Thrown horseshoes, yes…. Cow poo-poo, not yet! If we ever do, I’m sure we’ll take a picture of it – ha!

    Really neat to see all these in different colors! And they are “vented” too! Nice shot Emma!

    Thanks, Charles! There were lots of really neat old tractors we took shots of, but so far none have popped out like this one. :)
