I guarantee that the title will be "Nothing Runs Like a Deere" when I post this elsewhere - can't believe I didn't think of that.
This is my granddaughter's tractor - which she only recently learned to ride forward after going only backward for four months. What a relief!
I drove all over one morning, stopping every place I thought would make a good setting. Despite the blue sky, it was COLD. I wanted the tractor to look large - close to life size, I thought. I wanted a cool rural background. In the case of barns, I discovered I needed someplace where the tractor could be placed higher than the barn and at some distance from it and I could be lower than the tractor - not easy in country that is basically flat LOL I wanted clean snow that I could make fresh tracks in - almost impossible as the crust on the snow was thick and firm enough to support my weight. Wish I had at least managed snow on the treads in all of them.
