|THEY LET ME DRIVE THE TRACTOR|
Last week, part of my barn duties entailed driving the tractor.
I love tractors.
It's something I don't talk about a lot, because it doesn't seem to be as much part of the common horse girl experience, but it's true.
It's maybe partially because I also have a real world job in the construction industry. I do all kinds of things, but when the heavy equipment comes out, things change.
|also I love this picture|
Not even kidding, there is this whole music video that runs through my head. It's like
IT'S A MOTHER-****ING FORLIFT BITCHES
Complete with crazy graphics and hip hop and gang signs and all that.

I come from a handy family and I take pride in knowing how to do things. I will judge you if you can't drive a standard. I used to be able to disassemble and reassemble the greater part of my engine in my old junker car. I can have an intelligent conversation with my mechanic, and I love playing with power tools.
Maybe it makes me weird. Maybe it's my western heritage. Maybe it's my job. I have seriously considered working to become a heavy equipment mechanic because OMG BIG TOYS ALL DAY. We'll see where that goes.
And don't even get me started on nail guns. They need a music video too.
So maybe not everyone is in to heavy equipment (get your mind out of the gutter). What's your non-horsey indulgence?
