Not sure why but we usually named equipment also, I had a 770 Oliver with a loader we called "Ollie" and a Ford Major diesel that was such a good little tractor I promoted it to "Seargent Major". Those are the only two I can remember.

My skidloader is named Skiduardo. 

Everyone else wanted to name it Skiddy but that was too obvious.

My 1996 Chevy 3/4 ton is "Ol Red" because of the color, My Farmall M is Margaret, the newly acquired Cat D4 is Delores, and I really like Milly for the Belsaw ;D

The log splitter I call "Jewel Crusher" cause on more than one occasion while splitting a really gnarly log, when it came apart, pieces nearly took out the family jewels if you know what I mean.

The F350 dually is called "Big Bertha" cause well, uhhh, a friend who is a LEO was following me after lunch when the truck was new.  He called me up and made some comments about big rear ends.  And it's probably best if the story stops there.  ;D

My first forklift, an IH 350 u conversion, I named Dougy, after my son. When people asked how I did things around here like heavy lifting I would say Dougy helped me.

I have a old homemade tractor that the wife named it after the builder. Had a old ford cabover semi years ago that was named old rust. We have several farms that are named after the old owners that are long gone.

I have friends that do that too. But one piece of land is named "shaky", which describes their financing at the time.

That is an old and very respectful tradition.

We use to own the Gordon Place,Yeaton Place and Clark Place.  People would move off from the farms into town. They would ask my Grandparents to buy their land. He had a job and could buy it. I can still hear my Father say he saw one family haul everything they owned away in a hay wagon.

Many of our loggers have named their woodhauler's and have the name painted on their rigs. Many names have been posted through out the "Timber Harvesting Methods & Equipment" thread.

I had a 1964 D6 named Bullwinkle. When I bought my wife a Polaris 4 wheeler it became "Rocky". We had a 67 Ford Galaxy 500 named Yellow Bird. It was very yellow.
