Since I'm 17 now, I've been having driving lessons. I really enjoy them but after driving tractors on my own for so long I have a tendency to be stubborn and not listen to instructions, but I can't help it. When I'm at home and have a spare hour or so, I'll hop in the car and drive around the yard and sheds for practice. The reversing is what I'm working on mostly, so I'll reverse around a shed or two. Clutch control isn't too bad because of the amount of driving I've done beforehand, but I'm working on junctions. I have an instructor for when I'm at home.
Sheila either sits in the front or back, but she really enjoys being a passenger. And as long as she's calm, that must mean my driving's bearable too, right?
I don't think Sheila would make a very good driver, though. She can't reach the pedals.
Talking of practice, Teddy's been helping out with the sheep a little.
He and Pip we think will make a good team once Teddy's gained a little more confidence and experience.
It's exciting to think that maybe we've got a good team forming here.
OK, maybe Teddy doesn't think it's that exciting...
