Horse drawn hay rake, Uxbridge-Scott Museum
From my archives, I confess.
Raking hay was (and still is) an important summer job on many farms. The number of animals a farmer could keep over winter depended on the amount and quality of the hay cut and collected. The invention of the horse-drawn rake was a huge boost to production. A horse drawn hay rake could do the work of eight humans with hand rakes.
In celebration of the old and wonderful "stuff", I am connecting to Rubbish Tuesday HERE.
