Rusty Manure Spreader

 Back wheels on old manure spreader

Oh, I bet some of you thought I was going to show you photos of an old politician, didn't you?  (I'm just kidding, right?)

Longer view

This is one of two manure spreaders on a country road near me. I'm not sure why a farmer would need two so maybe someone out there can enlighten me.

You captured these antiques very well.

I've never seen a manure spreader.. I would have to go around with a clothes pin on my nose.. Happy Monday!

Stephanie said...

A first for me to see a Manure Spreader and a rusty one at that. Great fine!

Wonderful shots of decay and rust. Makes me wonder about the people who had used them.

Penelope Postcards said...

It is both funny and sad that we all understand exactly what you mean by the politician joke. I wonder if this important piece of farming equipment operates nearly as often and as well. :)

Rusty old things are always beautiful and make great pictures !

Terri @ Coloring Outside the Lines said...

That's a new one for me- I thought it was an old hay baler! I love rusty old antiques!

Kathy said...

Maybe he needed a spare in case one got too rusty!

Shammickite said...

He needs two cos he has a lot of you know what to spread! Does this even work? It looks too far gone. Perhaps just a garden ornament now.

Pamela Gordon said...

Loved your comment re: the comparison to a politician. :) That's a great old rusty piece of equipment.

see you there! said...

A great rusty piece and I got a chuckle out of your sense of humor.

Easy. Politicians have LOTS of crap to spread around over fields and such...

Karen S. said...

That is one cool, rusty worker, and very cool to see!

TexWisGirl said...

very cool old piece of equipment!

Bethany Carson said...

Nice shot! That manure spreader looks pretty clean for a manure spreader! As my father is a welder who does a lot of ag repair, we see a few once in a while--they're his least favorite projects.

Sylvia K said...

Love your play on words this morning and I do SO agree!! Just the giggle I needed to start the day!! Great captures a always! Hope you have a fun, wonderful week -- camera in hand, of course!!!

Karen said...

Love rusty old stuff, it's so photogenic! Great shots.

Mary Hone said...

I love that faint blue color.

Sandra said...

Maybe the farmer is a collector of old and beautiful rusty things.. i love it. and we have enough Old Manure Spreaders in Washington DC to cover the US and Canada several times.

Ginny said...

I think he should fill it with flowers! Or with something pretty. It could be a great piece of yard decoration.

Montanagirl said...

I really like these. It's neat get photos of "olden" days machinery. Yes, nice play on words too! :)

Susan said...

Ha, ha, a politician. So true eh? Love, love the pictures!

RedPat said...

Good one, EG! ;-))

VP said...

Rusty but picturesque!

visualnorway said...

Rust is a loved by any photographer, so maybe the farmer had photography as a hobby?

Linda W. said...

Amazing how scenic old rusted farm machines can be! Even manure spreaders.

Photo Cache said...

He probably needed two because he has a very large farm. Things like this you don't think of until you see it and then you realize, yeah they need implement to spread manure :)

Hoped your Easter was great.

Michelle said...

This has aged into a fine beauty!

Valerie said...

That first shot is a cracker. Isn't it strange how much appeal rusty objects have for us?! Thanks for sharing, Tina

Geoff Wilkinson said...

Great first picture, even a muck spreder with all its rust can be photogenic....

Felicia said...

this is so cool

Jim said...

Good rusty shots.

Randy said...

Nice find.

Jack said...

I am impressed that you knew that is a manure spreader.

I don't like rust in real life but it certainly photographs well :-)

I wonder if the farmer still has an acute sense of smell.

PerthDailyPhoto said...

I think Birdman hit the nail right on the head EG :) there's something incredibly photogenic about rusty objects !

William Kendall said...

It certainly does make for a good photo subject!

Gattina said...

These old machines seem so romantic to me !

cieldequimper said...

You've just reminded me that I once fell into a heap of manure...

Fotolosopher said...

Holy crap! I don't know about the farmers but the politicians have perfected the art of manure spreading - they don't need any machines!

Rose said...

Wonderful rust shots...
