Interesting to see such a scene which must have been so much more common in days past, Danny.

There was a hay shortage last year - not sure whether there still is or not, so good on them for collecting every last stem.

The more and more I see this beautiful Clydesdale working the land, the more I admire such a industrious and hardworking creature. Pity some of today's youth were not similarly minded

A proper multi purpose contraption here Danny.
Probably has a bit on it for finding a needle in the haystack !!
(And regarding your comment about not showing you the subject of my upload.
I would have done had you not got a grip of my arm and frogmarched me screaming
and shouting into the pub !!)

I really enjoy looking at your images, they prove we still have hard working folk in this country and give us a wonderful insight into days of yore (well in my case, my days of yore Wink ) Our farmers use modern means and they had practically finished their harvesting over a week ago ...

Yes it's a hard life Carol but there are three generations working this farm and they absolutely love their horses. One of the big problems is getting replacement equipment as there is not much of it about now. It can take them a day what some farmers can do in an hour and a half.

This activity (albeit using more modern equipment) is in full swing here in Norway at the moment, Danny. Your images show a more pleasing method than the John Deere tractors and automation of today...
