I’d like to introduce you to a special new member of our family. I’ve named her Mathilda, though Stephen is trying to come up with a more manly sounding name, but I think she looks like a Mathilda. What do you think?
She’s got a groovy 80’s vibe and plenty of width across the back end, she reminds me a little of myself.
Like most ladies Mathilda loves accessories. She comes equipped with a front loader, a bale spear and a bush hog.
Like all new additions we’ve had some teething troubles. At first a cell in her battery failed so it went flat and her alternator needs replacing. We also had a bit of an issue on Wednesday when Stephen took her out for a bit of a spin only to get stuck in a boggy patch at the bottom of our field. Our neighbour brought out his CAT and dragged Mathilda out and she is now safely ensconced on the drier high ground at the front of our land. Soon she will have her own special tent to live in where she will be very warm and cosy.
Despite our difficulties we are very happy to have Mathilda as part of our family. I hope that she likes us and her new name; David Brown Case 1390 just didn’t have a friendly ring to it. We are looking forward to many farming adventures with our new-to-us and most beautifully retro tractor.
It’ll be nice to have another girl around.
