Old Farm Machinery

Lawn ornament

I'd love to tell you what this is but I dunno. It's sitting on the lawn in front of a local farmhouse. Maybe someday I'll knock on the owner's door and ask.  Meanwhile, I want to admire the rust, the wheels, the various shapes...

In celebration of the old and wonderful "stuff", I  am connecting to Rubbish Tuesday HERE.

It sits nicely in the deep snow, whatever it is!

A worthy mystery. :-)

Looks brilliant in the snow Tina, you'll have to nip back and snap this scene in Spring, bet it will still look fabulous!

Jo said...

What a beautiful image! Great photography. Thanks for sharing.

It is a great image. I agree with the above, we will need to see this again in the spring.

Oh that's a great find and photo of it! I love when we run across old machinery like this. They provide great photo-ops.

Sandra said...

maybe a seed dropper? horse pulled, seat facing forward? i love it for the art of it.

TexWisGirl said...

yup, a planter. one seat in front for the team driver. one in back with a 'chute' to drop seeds or maybe even seedlings into a track.

Viola said...

So fun! To find rusty old things like this one! I'm sitting here wondering what vehicle is that.. I had to ask my mom, she could not tell either..
Hope you'll one day find out of it! Let me know if so.. :)

Viola said...

A potato setter?
No........

Penelope Puddlisms said...

An original horse-drawn tractor? Whatever this is, it certainly looks lovely in a blanket of snow.

The rusty iron looks great against the purity of white snow.

Nice shot! I love the old rusty machinery against the white snow.

Judy said...

I've never seen one like it but I think it might be a seed planter. Whatever it is, it looks nice there in the snow.

Sylvia K said...

Great shot for the day! Love the old farm machinery -- brings back lots of fun childhood memories!! Have a beautiful week!!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

I do love old rusty farm equipment but never know what it is. I need to get my act together to remember this meme. (Note to self...).

William Kendall said...

It looks like it fits in nicely!

Lowell said...

Very cool. In more ways than one. I'm not familiar with this thing either, but it appears one person is driving the horses and the other is planting something

Margaret Adamson said...

The machinery and snow make for a great shot.

Halcyon said...

It looks pretty in the snow.

Gail Dixon said...

I have no idea what this is, but it's a wonderful find! The white snow lets all the color and details come through.

RedPat said...

It looks great in the snow, EG!

Daniel LaFrance said...

Looks like it was a seeder... whatever it may be... it is cool! Love old farm things.

Judy said...

Lots of wonderful shadows, with that many angles to it...

cieldequimper said...

At the risk of trespassing, I would probably be found trying to sit on it...

A Quiet Corner said...

Sadly we had to leave an old plow at our place in VA with the new owners because we had no way to get it here!!!...:)JP

Cloudia said...

I enjoy coming across old farm equipment in the snow too. Something about the whiteness and rust that lures me everytime.

Jack said...

It's a . . . It's a . . . It is right on the tip of my tongue.

Felicia said...

could be a potato planter. front seat for the driver and the back seat for the person to sit on to drop potatoes down that round hole.

they should put Christmas lights on it.

theflutteringleaf said...

It makes for a beautiful image, well done. A great contrast against the snow and trees.

Kay said...

Beautiful shot in the snow! I love the look of old equipment like this...and I'm guessing it has seen plenty of hard work in its day.

Randy said...

The snow really makes it stand out.

Stephanie said...

It looks nice against the snow.

diane b said...

These old machines make nice art today especially in the snow.

The shape and rust really pop against the white snow. - Margy
