I've noticed recently as well, the farmers around here (Gloucestershire(!) and Wiltshire) must have got rich or have possibly formed a co-operative to buy more expensive farm equipment, including faster tractors (fast tractor, that's good coming from a JTDM driver like me
) which mean they believe they don't need to pull over any more (not that they did before) and let the dung dodging queues of traffic stuck behind them by - have you seen just how high a tractor wheel can project a lump of field? Incoming!!.
And they all seem to have fields miles apart so you get stuck behind them for even longer
You'd think that amongst all the gadgets they fit to these modern tractors (sat nav, air con, radios, coffee machine, snaggle tooth, personal massage service........all right, I made up one of those), that someone must have invented something to clean off their bloody wheels before leaving their slurry pits. They could call it, oh I don't know, a brush?
I'm gonna go for a ramble over their fields this weekend wearing a pair of boots that dispense tar as I go, see if they complain
Might even take the dog......
