She said she and her husband Phil are in need of a sprayer for their tractor--something that will provide foliar feed for their plants and trees.
I asked her for a few more specs: How big should it be (capacity)? Did they want something they could drag behind or
She answered all my questions, but I realized I still didn't know exactly what kind of tractor they own. But I thought I knew how to find out, without bugging Amy.
I thought I had seen a photo of their tractor recently on her blog. So I looked and found the following:

I decided to Google new holland 120 and see what I found.
Oh! I was surprised.
I'm not sure what motivated me to click on the YouTube link, but I did.
That tractor looked very different from what Phil was driving.

Which led to . . .
(Yow! Two things: 1) Apparently New Holland may actually come from the Netherlands. I wouldn't have thought that until I saw a Dutch video of a New Holland tractor trick driving contest. 2) There are crazy people all over the world! --And I'm not just talking about the farmer who would risk his expensive tractor for the sake of a few seconds of "glory" driving on two wheels at a 45 degree angle. I'm talking about the audience as well who stood their ground as he made tracks toward them.)

And then a whole bunch of tractor accidents. I mean nasty ones!
You wonder how some of these kinds of things can occur! What was the person doing when he got himself into some of these situations?
I guess the point is: Be careful out there. Even monster farm equipment is far from invincible!
