Tractor Restorer has an Affinity for Nature

The process of restoring a used John Deere tractor is something that many farming and brand enthusiasts are familiar with, but certain members of the agricultural community take their projects to entirely new levels.

For some, tractor restoration simply begins as a hobby, as they wish to see their favorite old models of John Deere equipment returned to its original glory. Time is spent reconfiguring certain parts, cleaning the external chassis and ensuring that it runs as smoothly as possible.

However, sometimes the love for John Deere tractors can manifest itself in a unique way.

The Fence Post reported that one John Deere restorer found a perfect balance between his love for animals and tractors, as Bob Terrell and a wood duck drake became tied to the same set of farm equipment.

The odd partnership started when the duck flew onto his property and immediately became attached to Terrell’s antique farm equipment.

“I’ve got an old John Deere horse-drawn manure spreader near the pond and frequently that was his perch,” the tractor enthusiast told the news source. The duck has an affinity for a 1935 John Deere Model D, and the two began to take rides together around his property.
