Old Mac Donald had a farm.....

 
'Old MacDonald'

You are sure to find a tractor on a farm


I will also be entering this over at Word art Wednesday

And speaking of farms I'd like to share a drawing done by my youngest nephew. He lives on a farm and is, and has always been, crazy about the mechanical equipment which is used on a farm.



As you can see the picture has it all. A couple of tractors, a harvester, UTE (Utility Vehicle or Bakkie as us South African's call them) and even the helicopter which sprays pesticide on the crops.
This school used this piece of art as a fund raiser. It was turned into greeting cards and a calendar.
