    Default Hauling wood to the House

    My daughter sure has taken an interst in operating equipment.
    She has been riding in the buddy seat on the tractor at the farm and insisting on hauling wood this winter.
    Snow plowing is next whenever we get some of the white stuff.

    It's real clear child abuse. Suppose to work from dawn to dusk. Now she has to work at night as well.

    ???Child abuse???
    That's not what my daddy called it.

    BTW, I was a lot younger than BD's daughter when I started operating the farm tractors. And, they were a Farmall 100 and a JD model B. Nothing nearly as nice as what he has.

    Thanks.
    I think this is called spoiled rotten.
    I don't think the term child abouse came about until the year 1999?
    2 weeks ago I made my son go to bed without supper for talking back to his mom, he told me it was child abuse
    When they are being punished they have to use the wheel barrow to haul wood.
    I modified the wheel barrow and it has two wheels on the front.
    I agree about holding the seat down and reaching the pedal.
    Seatbelt keeps it from shutting off when she hits a bump.
    I had to scooch forward in the seat and stretch.... my leg to push the clutch in when I started.
    HST sure makes learning a whole lot easier.
