Your lifestyle is very different from mine. It is not an easy one by any means, but there is a quiet dignity in it, and something beautiful about being so close to nature day in and day out. I like the photos of your kids too (I\'m a mom). My dad has a log cabin in Ohio, and I have gone there since I was a kid. I always enjoyed fishing and hiking in the wood - poking around - even looking for snakes with the kids from neighboring farms. I have read a lot of blogs, but I have never seen one like this.

I have a small homestead in california, I have 3 daughters that are very involved in our lifestyle. I wanted to address to you the contact with the bears. I have bears in my yard most every night as wel as Mountain lions and every other critter that you can think of. When you were on your ride your daughter was pretty insistant that you turn around and not go past the bear cubs. She was so right and bravo to you for listening. I can tell you that once that mother saw you approching her family, you would have had your own Rodeo at hand, and it would not have been fun! Last week when we were on a ride we came across 2 bears, now our horses did not smell them, but if they had off we all would have been in trouble. THUS the importance of wearing a helmut when riding, you never know when your trusty steed is going to bolt. Take care, and have a wondeful day!!!

I really shopped before buying my first Mahindra and found them to be the best value on the market. I've had no trouble getting what few parts I have needed. Most parts are available within a day or two and can be drop shipped right to your door if need be. Thanks for the comment and good luck tractor shopping! Joe, I don't think it's any secret that some of the Mahindra tractors are rebranded TYMs. TYM makes some very nice tractors and most would agree that their partnership with Mahindra has helped grow their brand. I would point out that the TYM dealer network isn't quite as established as Mahindras and a good dealer can make or break a tractor purchase. Also Mahindra offers quite a few tractors that aren't TYMs. Only the 10 series is made by TYM and one of the 4 10 series tractors uses a Mahindra engine. Hats off to TYM for both making a very nice tractor and putting an extra 2 years on their warranty. Good luck with your new tractor! Thanks for reading and for the comment! c hurley,

I WOULD LIKE YOUR OPINION AS TO THE RELIABLITY OF THE TRACTORS AND PARTS AVAILABILITY AND COSTS COMPAIRED TO OTHERS. IT LOOKS TO ME, AS IF, MAHINDRA BUILDS A GOOD MACHINE, BUT I WOULD LIKE TO HEAR FROM AN OWNER. THANKS FOR YOUR HELP.. I AM THINKING OF BUYING A MAHINDRA TRACTOR VERY SOON.

We only have ten hens, so not nearly what you are doing LOL but we use the fake eggs from time to time to get them to lay in the boxes rather than on the ground.
