Glad to have you reading! Check back often! Todd, I\'m busy, but atleast it\'s keeping me out of trouble. Come on down sometime, we\'re in Pine Knot, KY. I\'m a real fan of the 00 series Mahindras. They are a no frills workhorse. Very simple design. Mine is over 800 hours now. Massey\'s 500 series are pretty much in the same class as the 00 series. If you go that route you\'ll fid you pay extra for the synchro shuttle tranny. The Mahindras have synchro shuttle 8x8s standard in the 00 series. The F-R synchro shuttle is a must for changing directions in applications like loader work. I wouldn\'t be without it. I have never been on a 7520 except at the dealership. Everyone I know that has them loves them. My 7010 cab has the 7520 engine. With the 7520 you gain not only horsepower, but lift capacity and 4 more gears both forward and reverse. I suggest you try both the tractors you\'re interested in and make your own comparison. Do you have a local Mahindra dealer? How about a local MF dealer? Check out these forums for more info on what people think of their brands. http://www.tractorbynet.com/forums/ http://www.nettractortalk.com/forums/index.php PS Come visit in June so you can help in the hay! greenbeanbanshee,

Man you got your hands full. I love your farm. I'm jealous. I live in southern Illinois just north of paducah. I'd love to come down & check your farm out sometime if I could over to your neck of the woods. Where are you exactly? How do you like your 6000? I'm looking at a massey 500 series & the mahindra 6000 series. I also like the 7520. Whats your thoughts? Good luck on the farm. Todd. Hi. Man you got your hands full. I love your farm. I’m jealous.

I've checked ebay some, but never really found what I'm looking for at a reasonable price. I'd really like to inspect closely what I buy too. I'm hoping to find a used inline, but may have to settle for a newer New Holland or Case IH. Luckily my springs never dries up this year. Probably because I cleaned it out good last year. Been way too dry though that's for sure. Thanks for reading! Jim,

Work, work, and more work. Hopefully it will slow down a bit with colder weather. Kevin, Kind of my bad on the previous entry. I thought I had hit publish, but had only saved it. I hear yopu on the square balers. I've talked to lots of dealers and most are recommending an inline of some form. I'd like to have new, but wow the price. Lakes are drying up here too. We've moved out of the extreme drought category, but the wrong way. They are now calling this drought an exceptional one. Had never seen that category til just the other day. I'm beginning to believe if it doesn't rain soon there won't be a good first cutting of hay next year. Keep your fingers crossed for some rain! Maria, Thanks for the commet and glad to have you reading! Travis, Glad to have the opportunity to share my life with everyone. Hoping they get this Wolf Creek Dam project accelarated so Nashville doesn't have to worry about a flood and Lake Cumberland can get back to normal pool. Thanks for reading and check back soon! Chris, Glad you enjoy the blog! More to come as time allows. Keep checking back! Grace, I've been all over this great country of ours and I have always longed to get "HOME" to Kentucky. Although Western Ky is different it's still got a whole lot in common with us here in Eastern Ky. There's just a whole lot more Federal land here and the government doesn't pay property taxes so the local governments are poor. We live about a half mile from the litle one room school that my mom attended when she was a little one. Too many of them have been allowed to fall to ruins. As always glad you're reading and check back soon! Hurricane Teen, Noone ever said farmers had it easy. Never know the hand you're going to be dealt from year to year. Hope evrything turns out okay with the farmers in your area. Thanks for the comment! Sheila,

It's been a rough year down here in north Florida for rain, too...We had something like a 20-30 inch deficit, and then we got 27 inches in a week's time from a northeaster...Flood or famine. A lot of the guys in my county just put out potatoes, and some of the fields are flooded. Hopefully they won't rot out. Good luck to you, and I hope you become a little less busy soon.

I enjoy the pictures. The roadways look like my old highway 62. Your wooded areas are greener and more dense than Muhlenberg county.Your quote from Lincoln is right--we never lose our sentiment for Kentucky. The weather must be changing now. In my time the snow was deep and we had to walk far to our one-room school. We were tough little critters. The children look well. You are providing them many opportunities and pleasures. Best wishes to all of you. Grace Joel, I was feeling a little concern since I didn’t see a posting for awhile. I enjoy the pictures. The roadways look like my old highway 62.
