From Horses to Tractors in a Lifetime

I love seeing the Throwback Thursday photos pop up on Facebook and Instagram so I thought I would share a couple of my favorite Throwback photos.

This is my grandpa and his niece. I have no idea what year this was taken but since I know his niece is now a great-grandma, it has to be at least 70 years old!

It's hard to imagine that my grandpa farmed with horses.

This photo was taken in 1957. As you can see, he moved to tractors by then.

I wish I had taken more photos of him on the farm in his later years. It would have been cool to see him in a big green tractor with a cab and a grandkid on his lap.

He drove a tractor until he was in his 80s. He was something else!

  1. Once all the crazy dust settles. I will have to dig out the old family farm pics and share! Fun times. It's crazy how big tractors have gotten in just 30 years!
