Chain harrowing

At the weekend, the horses were taken off the field next to mine after being on it all summer; and, as you can imagine, they left a few keepsakes behind them. :P So what better way then to use horsepower to clear it?

This is my favourite photo, because it has my grandparents' farmhouse in the background. Go back a hundred years or so and this would have been the normal view...



The horses were driven down as a team of four, then the leaders were taken off and put on one chain harrow, and the second harrow was attached to the back of the cart.



Pepsi found this terribly exciting.



William, who found it very exciting too...



Henry and William.



Boy and Harvey, apparently having a conversation as they work.



Lol, William! What a goon.



I like this photo, too.



Stopping for a teabreak.



The team heading back to the yard.



I don't know how William still had the energy, but apparently he did.



There was a big old rip down that side of the rug ... I photoshopped it out. XD If only it was that easy to fix in real life!
