I was going to say that liking tractors must be a male thing — until I realized, with a start, that I had noticed, that at least 40% of the participants in the tractor pull that I watched, around 4pm on Sunday, were females. So, I guess liking tractors cuts across the sexes. I have never owned a tractor per se. I owned, when I first came to the U.S. in 1985, a fairly big lawn-mower that had a pulling hitch — but it wasn’t really a tractor tractor. I really don’t have a use for one given that I don’t have the land. But, I do like to watch them — especially the old ones. Love their essential simplicity and how rugged they are. Anywho, I never visit Sandwich Fair (which is basically every year) without making a point of walking over to the tractor arena. Actually it is my favorite part. And yes, I also like to take pictures in that setting. Always a lot of color and raw excitement. Well, I wanted to share. Enjoy.

I like to watch — and take pictures — of the tractors and tractor pull at Sandwich Fair. I love the whole scene: the sound, the smell, the action and above all the vivid colors. I can spend a lot of time hanging around the tractor arena. But, given that the girls are not that enamored with tractors my time tends to get rationed. I managed to spend about 30-minutes at the arena on Sunday. That was good. I managed to learn about the new pulling sled from a gentleman I was standing next to. That was good. It is always a bonus if I learn something new.

So enjoy these pictures.

Here are the pictures I posted yesterday of the new pulling sled. Click image to access that post.
