Sunday Stills.....Chains

For more Sunday Stills......

Curb chain
There are so many chains on a farm. Drive chains, tie chains, tow chains, timing chains, the list goes on and on. I only found a few of them......

Apron chain, forage wagon

Gate chain

Drive chain, antique hay loader

Drive chain, same implement

Curb chain


Cat named Chainsaw, called "Chain" for short

I forgot about curb chains, too - although I don't think I have any any more!

Great series of photos - actually now I think about it, it's a really good photo essay. Love it.

It's the little details like this that help bring the farm life you live to life for the rest of us.

Thanks for a very nice photo series.

Nice variety, I half expected to see the chains you probably have on hand for birthing a calve. But then again, you are too busy during that event to worry about photos. Regular Guy

Excellent shots! I really liked the tree grown over the chain, thats an old tree..and chain..:-)

Nice selection, I went to do chains on the horse tack and realized that I don't or haven't had any chain on horse tack for quite some time.

Wonderful - from the first photo to the last!

Very good! I especially liked the chair around the tree. It's obviously been there a long time! :)

Nice little story there:)

OK. Gotta ask: Why "Chain saw" ? :)

Tails, thank you! I wanted to get a photo of the actual chain on the chain saw, but I couldn't get into the shed.

Joated, thank you. I love Sunday Stills for making me think and look and try for new stuff.

Tom, thanks, oddly enough we don't have any obstetrical chains. We use baling twine. lol

Ed, thanks, oddly enough it's only been there maybe eight or nine years. Maybe less. It's a box elder, a real weedy tree that grows stupid fast and then falls over on the fence or something. This one was killed by the chain this summer, but I have been trying to get the guys to take it down for years before it falls on the house or cars. Now maybe they will.

Lisa, I had to have Liz dig out Magnum's bridle. Now I need to put it away again. lol

NW, thank you! Miss talking with you....

dibear, thanks!

TenMile, he is a real character!

DD, thanks!

Cathy, when he was a kitten his mama abandoned him on our back porch. He was such a tough little guy he never let it set him back. He lost a bunch of toes in some unknown accident. Didn't let that stop he either. He is just tough as a chainsaw and so the name. We tend to not force names on critters and just let them find them for themselves....

This is hilarious and I love the photos! Especially Chain the Cat! :-)

Cathy said...

OK.

Wow. Bless his tough little heart . . . and you all for letting him find his own name :)
