Now for today here is a solution doe what to do with your old race horses. These two are hitched to a grain binder. A grain binder would cut the grain stalks and bundle them and then lay them on the ground. Next you and all your kids, and your wife and in laws, and anybody else you could find would have to go out to the field and stack all the bundles in a "shock" to finish drying before going to the threshing machine. Hot , dirty, back breaking labor. And you thought the horses did all the hard work right? :-) Notice the tongue is supported by a set of wheels called a truck wheel to carry most of the weight of the machine, so the horses didn't have the extra weight.100_1246.jpg100_1247.jpg100_1248.jpg All for now.
