I chose this photo today, because of its date, August 31, 1908.. 101 years ago...farming was different back then! I love the fly net on the horse, in all the photos that I have..this is the only one with a fly net. I believe that they are pitching hay off the wagon. Are you old enough to remember hay stacks? I remember them..standing witness to hard work on the farm. If the hay mow in the barn was full, hay was stacked in a huge mound for the winter. Hay Stacks and Straw Stacks were off limits for us kids. It was animal food and bedding, if you thought it looked like a fun place to play..especially in the winter when it would be covered in snow and could possibly be a sledding hill ..you were mistaken:)
