"Archie" the Lil' Fergie That Could!

Meet "Archie," the lil' 8N Ford-Ferguson tractor that ruled our farm not so many moons ago!  Archie belonged to "Uncle Doug" and I do believe this was his favourite tractor!  I'm not sure how "Archie" got his name but this lil' tractor did it all!  Equipped with tire chains when necessary, "Archie" worked 365 days of the year.  He hauled manure from the pig barns, hauled the post pounder when necessary, raked hay and he even pulled small harrows for working in the fields.  Although "Archie" has been resting out by the corrals, he does in fact still run!  And on this overcast, windy, November day, I am certain   if his tires could talk there would be many, many stories to be told!
