I've been viewing the forums for about a month and have decided to join. I live in Riverside, California on an acre and a half with my wife. We raise and show Appaloosas. We own two mares and one gelding who's in training for the 2013 show season. We also own a mini paint mule who's trained for cart driving. As for tractors, my first was a 1948 Ford 8N with a bucket and scraper that was bought 8 years ago. My newest tractor is a Kabota B2320 with bucket and scraper bought new two years ago. I've added a sun canopy on the ROP and soon will be installing lights on top for added light when my bucket is blocking the headlights. The Kabota was a big step up from the 8N in terms of steering, braking and general handiness. I still miss my first tractor. In Riverside, 8Ns are still common and sell fairly cheap, so if I get the desire to restore one it won't be to hard to find. My hobbies are guitars, guns and showing our horses. I'll be posting pictures soon and if anyone has any questions please respond. Thanks, Bill.
