The Pabst boys ready for their morning run. I wonder if they fed all those horses the spent grain from the brewing?

Cowboys. What struck me is the horses, they're ground tied, trained to stay wherever the reins are dropped to the ground. But half of them are on very uncomfortable ground. Why would a cowboy do that to his horse when it means after lunch his horse isn't rested. Or do you think they were posed for the picture after everybody put a clean shirt on?

I'd guess that every cowboy wanted his horse in the pic.

Parking lots hadn't been invented yet.

This is hard work, even with sharp saws, and sturdy boots, it's hard work all day long. That load isn't too bad for the horses but it would be a lot easier on wheels. I love watching horses work. Looks like they're leaving the birches.

Damn skippy it is.

Grandpadigr was a logger. His dad was a logger.

One time Ucledigr had a tree go down in a storm, it fell into the creek. It was a huge old tree, and had to be cleared out of the creek lest it create a jam.

A bunch of us gathered up one Saturday to remove this tree. Uncledigr came down to the creek carrying one of Grandpadigr's old two-man cross-cut saws and a spraycan of oil. He wanted to "do it the way Papaw done it". We all took our turns with history, so-to-speak. In the creek. Waist deep to the grown-ups. Got it done.

I still hurt when I think about it.

Horses didn't tear the shit out of the woods though. Appropriate level of tech in some conditions.

Spinning wheels are rototillers, cat treads are worse when they turn, but a careful operator can minimize damage. Most don't care.

Driving home from Pittsburgh today, saw an Amish farmer in the field with his team. Haven't seen that in February before. I'm not sure what his purpose would be right now, since we're due for some 0 degree nights in the next week ...

Maybe plowing plant material under so it has to time to compost by planting time?

Maybe ... not usual around here but this isn't a usual winter. Maybe too much is coming up too soon and it has to be plowed under. We had a small herd of deer grazing on our north field at dusk - so strange for them to be grazing now, too.

Definitely sensing a disturbance in the force.

Nail a calendar to the tree so the deer will know what they are supposed to be doing.

Why is that?
