Sunday Stills - Metal

This can be any form of metal you would like, the challenge is to try to come up with something no one else can think of..;-)



Well, there will probably be a hundred bits posted today...



...but maybe no one will post a picture of their all time favorite trash can :-).



Don't ask me why there are teeth marks all the way up these boards. I can tell you why the copper lightning rod wire is so polished though.



Some of the most important metal on the farm...if you remember to use it.



Some ex-metal. Metal that is no more. Some deceased metal. Pining for the fjords. Also known as "a bad idea". I thought the concrete pad this automatic waterer sits on would be a perfect place for the salt and mineral blocks...



Some metal in the wool house. These are the metal heddles on the four harnesses of my big loom.

For more Sunday Stills...

Nice shots. The ex-metal is pretty interesting. Looks like we had similar thoughts on chain and hinges.

Once I went into Tractor Supply looking for rust inhibitor. They don't sell it, at least not here. I don't know of any farm without rust. They must cater to new farms...

Great photos. I used a full cheek on my mare. Especially love the heddles -- unusual perspective of a loom.
