Dear All Terrain Buggy Makers,
I wish to take this opportunity to add some more ideas to my previous letter. Having now used the buggy for 8 weeks, I feel that you could create an all new buggy suited for those in agriculture, game keeping, crofting and landscaping, etc.

1. Due to a mini crofter who doesn’t like being stationary, why not add a self generated energy system. We have enough wind turbines in our country, let’s look at new ways.

2. I have noticed that baby chairs often have a button for vibration. Why not add the option of a sheep shearing machine attachable to the side to lull the baby to sleep and give the sheep their annual haircut.

3. Addition bottle holder storage to hold iodine required for lambing and calving as well as a few slots for the ear tag device, my multi purpose screw driver and other essentials would be very handy.

4. The two back wheels are removable, can you make it interchangeable with a lawn mover blades and a scarifying device. If I’m going to push, let’s make it multi tasking. It then means promoting quality time with the mini crofter and getting the grass cut.

5. The handle bar is adjustable, great. Can you place a locking tripod between it and the canopy to mount a .22 when I go out hunting/gathering.

6. Once I have got my deer, I would like a way to fasten two chains to pull it along behind me while I push the buggy. I’m not sure what weight limit the buggy has but it would be worth increasing it in case the deer is bigger than I thought.
Yours sincerely,
The Crofting Wifie

Dear ‘All terrain’ buggy manufacturer,

IMG_1015Dear ‘All terrain’ buggy manufacturer,
When you sell a product as ‘all terrain’, I am intrigued to know what image you have in your heads. I would be more than happy to have any manufacturer of all terrain buggies come spend a day with me or any woman in agriculture.

However, as it may be a bit more muddy than you might expect and I might be chasing pregnant cows, here are some tweaks that would be useful.

These include:
Two hooks on the handle bar to hang buckets or shepherd’s crook.

Space between hand bar and canopy to place one small bale of hay.

Slightly bigger wheels: mole hills, tractor ruts, and rocks are all bigger in the field than they look from the fence.

Mud guards on back wheels. Obvious reason – we live in Scotland and when it rains, fields don’t work the same way drains on pavements work.

Waterproof exterior so you can wipe it down after the sheep have had a good scratch on it and you don’t have to turn up in town with a buggy smelling of sheep.

Raise the shopping bag off the ground to be higher than the average cow pat. Why would I need to skirt a field looking like I’m blindfolded?

Ring loops on the sides so you can easily rachet strap it if it’s a wee bit windy but you need it to stay put while you wrestle the sheep.
Yours faithfully,
The Crofting Wifie
