Wordless Wednesday: Bringing in the Sheaves

Center:  Mollie and Nellie, mule team
Right:  Tim and Tom, Belgian draft team

Sowing in the morning, sowing seeds of kindness,
Sowing in the noontide and the dewy eve;
Waiting for the harvest, and the time of reaping,
We shall come rejoicing, bringing in the sheaves.

Admit it.  You suspected our whole week of blog posts would have an equine theme!

Yes, it is a modern day threshing.   For you city slickers, that's all about oats.   

I have a farm story to tell.  Tomorrow.


  1. I've heard that song all my life but I've never seen a sheave before. Thanks for the photo.

    1. Come back tomorrow, Jan, and you'll get a better look :-)

    1. VERY, VERY hot! (And itchy!) But lots of fun :-)

  3. I guess this is the blog to go to right now for horsing around???

  4. They are so strong to carry all of that. It looks pretty heavy.

  5. Very neat photo. I gues you are helping the the sheaves.

  6. So... it's not "bringing in the sleeves"??

    Kidding - I knew it was sheaves, but my sis is classic for always singing the wrong lyrics to songs!

    Great photo! Happy WW!

  7. i'm glad you explained that as I didn't have a clue BOL

  8. Something we don't see in the city!

  9. My grandmother always sang that song to me at bedtime. I couldn't remember the words though. I'm off to read the next post!


Go ahead... bark at us!
