When I was a lad we had a workhorse whose name was "JAKE". Ole Jake used to do most of the powerful labor on our 250 acre farm. He plowed, he disced, he even pulled the hay wagon full of hay into the barn for unloadeing.

One day, I found Jake dead in the barn. Circa 1947. My dad knew that Jake was worn-out, but for me, it was quite an emotional experience.

Meantime, my dad already made an acquisition for a 1941 9N.

After we buried JAKE, a 1941 9N showed up at the farm. When I got home from Church, one Sunday, we decided to name the tractor "JAKE".

Afterall, Henry Ford, himself, said "The "N" is to replace the workhorse on the farm. In fact "to keep the next generation on the farm, the Ford "N" will be a necessity".

Well.....I still have JAKE in the barn. Ready for work, if ever he is needed.

Meantime, most of the elder brothers and sisters have left the farm, after WW2. Seems like I am the only left, now.

So, "JAKE" has become a personal collector's tractor. Might even say "family piece".

John,PA Hope it warms up. Just to open the barn doors and start him up.
