Old Time Log Wagon

Old Time Log Wagon

July 6, 2015

This wagon belongs to David Knepp of Knepp Logging LLC. He and a friend restored it to its former glory. This is a big load of logs and it took eight tough horses to pull it around on the soft ground. It was a hit at Horse Progress Days held on the 3rd and 4th of July in southern Indiana. Connie and I attended the event. It was a great time…if you like this sort of thing…and I do!

There were vendors of all sorts of farm and horse related products and equipment. The even was well attended. The rains stayed away both days, but like here had been raining pretty steady most of the month prior. The grounds were a bit soggy, but it did not dampen the spirit of anyone that I saw. There were all sorts of demonstrations for farm field, produce and logging. They had a great list of speakers on all sorts of topics, a tent for homemakers and children and a very nice high tunnel presentation.

There was lots to see and do, many friends old and new to meet and greet and great food to eat. I was glad to be in attendance, but worried that I would miss the first great opportunity here at home to make dry hay…and I was right. Now, rain is supposed to be back in the forecast. I will start making silage bales this week and just see what happens. It is very nice now to have a plan “B”.

Mid-eighties today and air so thick you can cut it with a knife. I caught up in the garden and clicked a few things off my list and got the hay mower ready to go. I feel a bit loaded down, but it will all work out…it always does 😮

Now, these are tomatoes!!!

Ralph, I wish I would have known you were there! We could have talked maple. I’ve been to every HPD since 2008.

And our wives could have talked quilting!

Holy Cow, that would have been nice. We had a good time. It was a little squishy as you know, but they put on a great show.
