Put tractor in high gear and rock it back and forth and see if engine moves. It should.
You can also jack up one back wheel with tractor in high gear and try to spin that tire. Engine should move. If not you are stuck. You can try to pull it with another tractor and see if the engine moves, but go slow and don't horse it or you may break something.
