Thread: How cool is this for a farmer.

  1. #1

    How cool is this for a farmer.

    Was going shooting from the farmers barn and the wind started topick up so I pull out my face mask to cover the head when I standing on the ground before climbing the bales, and something I never do is put the thread protectorin my pocket pulled the mask out and turned out the pocket completely so lost the thread protector in the grass look with a magnet later no good so said to the farmer watch out for it he laughed and said he see me after lunch.
    So the farmer coming down the track to the barn on the tractor jumps out of the cab with metal detector and shouts to me come down from the top five minutes later one thread protector back in the hand so I ask Bob why the metal detector he said he always loosing bits from off his tractor, bless him.

    Update to this he found his pen knife he lost in the yard.

    Price of a decent metal detector has to be preferable to picking up a large steel component from something with the combine/ forager!

    Never known a land owning arable farmer with a medium sized or above farm to be anything other than (very) well off. Unless they have made bad business decision outside farming or a bad marriage decision inside framing.

    I am more than happy for my arable farmer to prosper and do well....If he is happy he will continue to let me shoot over his 5000+ acres of fields, pasture and woodland !!
