Loading Hay

A couple weeks ago we took lunch out to Ben and I did some spring cleaning at Dad's.  After lunch the kids went out with Ben to fix a fence and load some hay.  When I got to the haystack he had two bales on the wagon.  We still use these old wood wagons, but now a tractor pulls them.  When I was a kid we still had draft horses pulling them but Dad finally got rid of them a few years ago.  I was sad to see them go.

Ben threw down the rest of the hay on this wagon and I stacked it.  All three tons.  I was pretty proud of myself even though I only did it once and slowly.  Ben loaded two of these a day all winter.
