Defo Sue.
A 'Veteran' -- whether active duty, discharged, retired, or reserve -- is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to his country for an amount of 'up to, and including his life.'

Looks really old and abandoned Sue. The rusty colour blends well with its surroundings. Well spotted and taken.
Failure is a privilege reserved only for those who try.

Nicely captured Sue. Looks a bit like an old Farmall. Whenever I see old farm machinery I ponder on the reason for it being abandoned. It probably cost a tidy sum to buy originally.

Probably got to the stage where it wasn't a viable option to repair it Moz.   Always seems a shame though.

I've seen a few while walking in the dales Moz.   They are usually miles from anywhere and it wouldn't be worth anyone's while to move them.

Great subject with lovely colours, I reckon there are a few more good images still to be had around the old tractor.
