The first Ford N I drove belonged to a farmer west of Wakefield KS. On my first tour of duty at Ft Riley my wife and I rented a house there in town. I met him by knocking on his door looking for permission to hunt. His wife told me "he's in that shed" and pointed to it. So I go into the shed an he's working on an IH 560D. He had messed up and I found where his problem was and helped him fix it. I had hunting rights! I also was doing some wrench turning for him from time to time. At the same time a guy in my unit was bragging about being a rodeo bum before joining the Army. The farmer called me on a Friday evening and said that he was going to need help moving a steer from a pasture to the barn to treat it for pink eye. He wanted to know if I could help and if there were any other guys I knew that may be able to come out. So I called several people and the only free was the rodeo bum. So Sat morning the "bum" shows up and we drive out to the farm. The guy brought a lasso with and I'm thinking to myself this guy is going to make a fool of himself and I'm going to have fun next week at work giving him grief about it! We get to the farm and the farmer and mu buddy come up with a plan. I'm going to drive a Ford 8N with my buddy on the hood and he's going to lasso the steer. This is getting better by the minute I'm thinking!!!!!! So the farmer and my buddy drive over to the pasture with the pickup and livestock trailer while I drive the 8N over. Now I'm really ready for my buddy to look like a fool! The farmer points out the steer that needs caught, my buddy climbs up on the hood, farmer opens the gate and away we go! Now it takes about 5 minutes to get the steer in range.....ole buddy is winding up for a toss....I'm laughing and telling my bud "don't miss"......and then I was very disappointed! He caught that darn steer on the first toss! Guess he had done roping!
Anyway that was my first time on a Ford tractor of any kind.......playing horse to catch a cow!
