The Old Ways,Labor Of Love ~ Part II

Mike and Terry are driving their team of Annabelle and April who are pulling this hay wagon. My Grandson CT and I are passengers on this ride Mike and Terry graciously allowed us to enjoy.
Mike and CT, and Annabelle & April ( the horses).
All this farm equipment is used with horse teams. No gasoline powered farm equipment here.
This is a truly "green" farm!
The horses eat the green grass hay, their fuel. They are the motors, the power, the strength on this farm. This strength is harnessed by Mike & Terry to produce the hay that feeds these mighty horses.
A few of the horses shading themselves from the hot sun. Aren't they beautiful?
CT on top of the hay.
CT helped Mike and Terry unload the grass hay.An honor for him.
A view of Mike & Terry's farm. Imagine living and working here every day among the horses you love.
Thank-you Mike & Terry for a beautiful day, a wonderful experience, and allowing us to take up a bit of your precious time. Thank-you for sharing your labor of love with us.
