Love these old photo's of my Uncle plowing . Faithful plowhorse Hans was my first horse to ride . This was taken in about 1950 on family farm . Nice old wagon was still being used .

    I love these photos of proud working men and horses ! We may have to relearn some of these skills someday with the price of oil and gas lol !!

    I love the photos, but I also wanted to point out that the horses are pulling what is called a dump rake. The tines are in the up position in the top picture, it could be raised with a hand lever and be locked for transport, or tripped with a foot lever when working in the field to dump the hay.

    Thank you walksoftly for correcting me . I just knew at that age when you hooked up the big horses they were for the plows . Later I remember bigger machines and yes I did bail hay . Glad you liked photo . Farms are part of our ancestry and important to remember how they survived when they came to this new country USA . Proud to have been a farmer
    Thank you again :-)

    I'm proud to have been a farmer as well, Canada wouldn't be what it is today without the hard work of our ancestors. I didn't work with horses, but I have sat on a dump rake pulled by a tractor.

    Hi Walksoftly . I have family in Canada that farmed but they raised exotic animals , brama bulls,llamas,birds and ect. My Uncle was a clown in rodeo . The first homestead was started in about 1890 by my grandmothers sister near Alberta :-) I have a Uncle with his trained horse that did tricks on command

    My great grandfather turned sod on his homestead in 1882 in Manitoba, your family sound like an interesting bunch.

    Walksoftly -The Canada bunch of our family were very interesting and farmed much different than we did :-) But they are still there and have some llama's yet . Is Manitoba near Alberta ? Please excuse my question I quess I could look at a map but you would know canada better than I . Your family has a long history there too and life was not easy was it ?

    The province of Saskatchewan sits between MB & AB, we live in western MB and it takes apx. 9 hrs driving time to get to AB. Our ancestors worked much harder then we did & sacrificed allot.

    Yes they did Walksoftly so it is important that the kids today know what are ancestors did to survive. Glad to meet a Friendly Canadian friend :-)
