Got to start them young!

I thought maybe this belongs in JD L&G but maybe here. Well anyway you got to start them young and then they will get tractors in their blood. This guy is 19 months but he loves it. And his grandpa lets him have a go at it. We had to move the seat up closer to the pedals.

Nice Give him a wrench or air ratchet in a few years, and let the fun begin.
I love my Grandsons help. Great way to bring them up.

Re: Got to start them young!

I got started young. Just over a year old in the first pic and a little over 2 in the second.

You can't be that old, at least they had tractors.

Everyone should have some toys. Mine happen to be green.

Re: Got to start them young!

This is my then six year old slapping the levers in this antique line shovel circa 1949? @ Zagray Farm last summer. He had a good time for about two minutes, but that thing probably sounded and felt like it was going to explode at anytime to him. When I went to get him down, he was ready!

Re: Got to start them young!

Sure beats seeing kids only sitting in front of electronic games and computers 24/7. Getting out and doing things with family is so important.
Love to see pics like this.

Re: Got to start them young!

Getting them interested in just about teaching them to like the tractors. You're also teaching them about machinery, responsible operation, and mechanical repairs. All of that goes a long way into making them well-rounded adults. Who happen to like cool toys.
