Aut cum scuto aut in scuto
Ok, so these are 2-string bales, much lighter than the 3-string bales I put away in my barn last evening. Still, she's moving one in each hand, so yeah, not a snowflake. She can help out in my barn if she likes.
In my experience with bales, the bales held together with two strings usually ran around 80 pounds while the ones held together with wire could be around 120 pounds. And it they got rained on that could easily double.
I grew up baling and never experienced a "three string bale"As the other gentleman stated above, regular bales are 80 pounds. We had balers that used wire (two strings) or twine(two strings)
By golly, there are three string bales:https://www.strawbale.com/straw-bale-design-choosing-your-bales/
Apparently, three string balers are more commes in the western arid regions where the drier air produces a less dense and therefore lighter hay. Three string bales are dimensionally larger than two string bales. Learn something new every day.
A good exercise to develop the pectorals.
I’d be proud to let her carry me over the threshold! 😉
Not sure. No sweat, clean clothes, looks a little butchy which would make me undesirable.
Anyone know who she is, let me know. I want to offer to bear her children, keep her house clean, cook her meals and make sure her 'other' needs are attended to. In return, I just want to show her off at the fair.
Geez Louise, a healthy & wholesome young thing like this, pictured at-work and in-motion, and the insults fly. Her boots are scuffed and her clothes show dirt and are work-worn. Come drive my tractor anytime, darlin'
Quite the hand...she's in need of a tan to show the effort in the field...her midriff is pure white. I want tan lines.
THINK SOMETHING IS HELPING TO SUPPORT THE BALES, WHICH WE CAN'T SEE. NOTE HER RIGHT HAND DOESN'T LOOK LIKE IT IS UNDER MUCH TENSION. BUT HOW CARES......SHE IS A VERY BEAUTIFUL WOMEN!!!!!
They're called "hay hooks"- simple but handy tools.
I don't know why some have their panties in a wad over this young lady. She has some muscle tone and strong shoulders. She's not a twig-thin Barbie and she may not be a farmhand but she is fit and healthy.
The Farmer's Daughter !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Friend, partner material if I was 45 years younger...and single.
No one even mentioned the can of chew in her left pocket. No one ain't saying she ain't attractive. She certainly is. But that photograph is completely staged. It is a still photograph which only alludes to action. It's doubtful there was much work before or after the photo. There is staged then there is too perfect-checks all the right boxes-staged.
Agreed on all points.
She is a keeper. But it all depends on the type of hay. Southeastern Coastal Bermuda would be 75-80 pounds. If it is legume hay you are looking at 50 pounds per bale.I grew up on a hay farm. I still hate hay 40 years later.
This picture is iconic, in fact an appropriate update to Rosie The Riveter.....impressive and appropriate.
Okay I did not see the snuff can ring. Only met 2 females who used smokeless. she is holding the bales as the twine which means straw bales not to heavy is taught. Country girl tan white midriff. My first assessment may have been off.
No work gloves
