Cows & Contraptions

I got lost one day and ended up finding this unsual collection of old agricultural equipment on top of a little mountain.  It was a half acre of row after row of really old farm machinery from the early 1900's.

Can you identify any of them?

Funny thing is, I am still using some of this old stuff on a daily basis.

Found lots of friendly cows, but they couldn't tell me where I was or how far I was to a paved road with signs.   

I found a cabin and pulled in after deciding they must have some agricultural heritage in them and might help me get back on the right path.

I got pointed in the right direction, made a new friend and I was on my way !

On the way there were more old barns, ( this one has double wooden silos) and more farm equipment spilled all over barnyards and roads.

Its always good to get home at the end of the day.

  1. Oh my goodness. We just bought a hay rake like the one in your picture with the 5 wheels. I will post it soon. I love and I mean love old farm equipment. Sometimes getting lost is a great adventure.
