    What is the last " stunt" one of your cows pulled?

    When I was smaller there was a heifer that we bottle feed. So after awhile she became a pet. We decided to keep her for a yearling, so she was so happy with us that she would actually give us hugs. She would jump up with her front legs cross them on our shoulders like a hug and put all her...

    IH 1086 question

    Sorry for the long delayed response. I did some more research and turns out that my 1086 used to be fitted with flow adjusters but for some reason they were taken out (valve and all) and replaced with a valve system without the controls. Thanks for your help

    IH 1086 question

    We just bought a IH 1086 from my great uncle. Passed away last month, rip. I was wondering if there was a way to adjust the speed of the hydraulics? we are using it on our square bale elevator that we modified to run on a hydraulic motor. Any input would be much appreciated.

    Will you , won't you ??????

    I'm going to get it. So far this year is been bad enough without getting that darn flu. I found out what it feels like to get a shock from my pacemaker/defibrillator for no reason at all. (not fun to have 840 volts going off about 17 times) Had surgery, stayed in the hospital for a week. And to...

    Wish we had snakes like that around here! :lol: All we got are nasty little beavers that swim up the the hook as you reel it in and bite it off the line. Lost half of my tackle because of them. :mad:

    I dressed up as tweety bird that went on a rampage. Took out my hunting wear and my paint ball gun and wore a tweety mask. Boy did I get some comments, all which were good by the way!
