Occasional Pyrenean Tractors (1)

We found this Ferrari today.

The owner was harvesting his hay in the field just behind the tractor and must have become concerned at our bizarre interest in his Ferrari, as he started to lob sticks and stones at us while we loitered beside his treasured possession! 

Sent from our GR10 trip - see here for our itinerary

hello-bonjour from the Alpes, Sue and Martin !!! Your blog is very detailed and interesting ! Reading it, we are walking with you... OK not so quick, but we join at the refuges. No news from Pierre and Yolaine from 3 days : maybe no internet where they are (they projected to reach Gourette today)so we expect some fresh news maybe tonight ? Good news too to read that you've joined once more Roland and Mary : very nice persons ! Continue to enjoy your trip "tras los Pirineos". We really are so happy to know you 2 !!! All the best and take care,
Love xxx Chantal (and Joel, of course)

"to lob sticks and stones" ?! Maybe that this savage took you for bears... ?? Anyway :incredible this way of welcoming !
Lost in his mountains maybe he does not know that the Hundred Years' War is finished for a very long time ?

Greetings Chantal and Joel
Thank you for your comment. Pierre and Yolaine were seen yesterday by John and Paul and were happy. You should hear from them soon.

To give him the benefit of doubt, he may just have been throwing things in the course of his scything, and in mitigation for him his aim was poor and he did respond to our 'bonjour' when we appeared from behind his Ferrari!

Nice pic.
don’t know an awful lot about Ferrari tractors i must admit. I think this is called a Viper. Some are articulated but i don’t think this one is. Tiny little thing though isn’t it.
