:smile1:While delliivering out in the middle of nowhere yesterday I breeze by this house (well sort of a house!) and see a glimpse of a red garden tractor sitting in the mud in the side yard. Being a MF guy I do a double take, did I just see what I thought? So I the Brownie turned around (a mile and a half further up the road) go back and stop. Sure enough it's a MF12G. Doesn't look to be in to bad shape. Unfortunately no one was home for me to talk to about it. I'm going to try and get back there today and see if any one is at home. Maybe offer then a couple Andrew Jacksons or so for the poor thing. It's a haul from my house to there but if they bite I think it will be worth it. Will keep you posted on the progress.

Best of luck Ross! Hope you can rescue the old girl! BTW I love your signature. I'll bet that the Newfs love the Masseys too LOL>

Yes they do! <VBG> Especially when Momma gets a load of pea stone for the kennel pens. All the stone has to be hauled from my driveway to the pens and that's a hike. They used to haul all of it up in carts. (that took a while!) I still work with them though so that they don't get lazy.

Stopped at the place with the mf12g again today. Still no one home, so Iwent across the street to the neighbors (they were home) and asked about the folks. Neighbors said they were at Disney world with there kids who are on school vacation and won't be back until late saturday night. So I guess I will have to wait until Monday and go back again. Hopefully I'll have a delivery out there. Will keep you posted.

Sorry to go off topc, but have you got any close up pics of the cart Newfs pulling.
I've got a Saint that needs to earn it's keep.

Geesh, some neighbors! Some stranger knocks on the door and they tell them the neighbor is in Florida and won't be home for days. Good way for someone to get their house robbed!

Same here, been looking for a good harness so he can pull the kids in the wagon.

Let me clear up the stranger knocking on the door. I'm a UPS delivery driver. Usually when a brownie backs in your driveway the folks come out lookin for a package and treat you like an old friend.(LOL) As for the draft cart, in my spare time (whatever that is) I build them for folks with large breed dogs. I'm also a Dog Draft Cart instructor. When I get a chance I will post photo's of some on my profile page. Still need to take pics of my MF12H also. Spent the day picking up Newfs from dog shows. The wife is away on business so I get to do all the various kennel chores.
