Ancient

An ancient manure spreader found out in a field....in the middle of nowhere.......literally.  



"He who follows his lessons tastes a profound peace, as looks upon everybody as a bunch of manure."

  3. It always surprises me to see farm equipment out in the middle of a field..left behind like some giant toy that ran out of gas.

    1. Terri, I have often wondered why pieces of equipment are just left out in fields. Strange to me!

  9. We had an old wooden one which eventually fell apart, that one is probably still salvageable for use since it is all metal. The wooden ones had a seat at the front for driving the horses.

  21. Manure is being spread all over Canada. There is a election campaign going on for federal government.

  22. I often see these old machines left in the fields. They are the best kind of 'lawn' ornament.

  23. One of the things I have commented about to my husband as we drive around the Wisconsin countryside is how randomly things are left in the fields. Do they break down, run out of gas, or just become outdated ? I guess I am more picky than I care to admit, I often want to clean up the rural Farms I pass!
