Day 496 - Things found in a barn, part deux

ISO 100, 47mm, f/4.0, 1/20 sec

What is a thing-a-ma-gig?

I'm guessing this must have been a collar for a work horse or maybe a mule? From the writing on the walls, we're pretty sure they had cattle, but I don't think I have ever seen a collar strapped onto a cow.

But then, I'm a city slicker, what do I know?


  1. Love the tones... think maybe they had ox?

  2. It's a draft horse collar, possibly one used to pull a plow. I grew up with a lot of that stuff, and that picture sure brings back memories!

  3. Very nicely composed picture! Interesting that there is all this stuff just laying about. Does somebody own the place or is it abandoned?
