My World

This piece of farm equipment that looks like a ladder is called a bale elevator.It carries bales of hay to feed the animals up to the hay loft, or bales of straw used as bedding.
Of course the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence.

Love your post for the day, Carol! And of course the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence and obviously not just for us two-legged critters! Delightful! Hope you have a lovely week!

Hay elevators were my very first amusement ride! It wasn't fast, and it wasn't scary but it sure was fun.

Looks like an interesting slide, Carol. And I love the green grass being eaten on the other side! I wondered if the cow's head got stuck?

I love that photo of the the head through the fence. It's easy to see where the expression comes from. :)

Your last picture makes me smile! I know that look on the face from my doggy...
Have a nice week ahead!

I just love seeing that cow munch grass through the fence! That is definitely a keeper!

Beautiful shots. I am seeing that equipment for the first time.

A fun post Carol - love the cow craning it's neck past the fence.

This elevator surely makes work easier for the folks by not going up & down the barn stairs. :) Great photos with lovely skies too.

The cow is so cute. Love the caption of the grass being greener.

I love your last photo and comment - there's always something tempting just within our reach ;-)

. . and the cherries sweeter. I could use that bale elevator, much easier than lifting them on the forks of a tractor.

Interesting post. Makes me smile... it is greener at the other side of the fence. :-)

This brings back memories! I've gotten so used to the big round hay bales down here in southern Indiana, I seldom see a baling operation any more. My uncles used an elevator like this and I watched and rode on the hay wagon many times...Monroeville, OH area.
