A tidbit of the Thresherman's Reunion from our family's point of view.

 I would love to go into way more detail about these pictures but it is currently 10:54pm. I want need to shower yet (lol). I have to get up at 5:45am tomorrow morning. I just don't feel like it nor do I have the time. Anywho, this fellow here is cultivating. Also his roan team came from my in-law's JI Bar Ranch.
 Six hitched to a drill! This was probably one of my favorite parts of the whole week. Also a bit nerve wracking as the drove them through the parade, but all went well! My Hubby got to drive them along with two other guys.
 My in-law's in the Democrat. Back in the day this is what they called the 'Buckboard'.
 Just breath taking!

 The guys who worked together to drive them through the parade. Since being hitched six across is not something we do regularly, they each drove a team individually but were all hooked to the drill together.
 Combine harvester.
 Three horse binder. Cuts the crop and spits it out into piles that are later stooked.
 A hearse.
 Three generations.
 Pitching sheaves onto the rack to bring to the Threshing machine.

 Grain wagon pulled by a pair of feisty little Haflingers.
 This was a School Bus believe it or not!
 Another Democrat, a fancier one that 'richer' people would have drove back in the day.
 Land roller.
 String of three pack mules.
 Four horse Discer.

Last but not least, an outrider! :)

I have soooooo many more pictures but that's all for tonight .
