    My grandfathers family had a wheat ranch in Wash. state, I wouldnt be surprised if he would have been able to put a name on all these horses....approx: 1916-1918

      Have you ever seen one of these horse drawn combines in person? There's one in the Smithsonian. It's HUGE!!!!

      Those were brutes to pull on flat land, those mules ( I think ) would have been switched out with fresh ones as the day went on. These machines weren't used extensively, because it took so many ( 20-25 ) horses/mules & men to operate them I count 6 men & there would have been more to take the grain away & handlers to bring out fresh animals as needed.
      It is an amazing photo & shows the hard work done by farmers of the era, thanks for posting.
