|The bobsled is a pair of bronks off the Klamath Marsh which I used to feed with.|
|Combine is a pic of my granddads combine with 27 head on it.|
|Drill is a 6 abreast hitch on a VanBrunt drill.|
|Yearling is just some young fillies out of Radalta King. The one on the left was one powerful mare when she grew up and the other a great lead horse for a hitch.|
|Feedteam is just the same bronks on a old wagon, box was 12 ft wide 4.5 deep and 20 long holding enough hay to feed 100 cows in one load. Those wheels stand 32 inches tall.|
Dale reminded me today that these pictures were taken a few years ago, but that they could just as well be taken tomorrow.
From Dale, "If I still had the ranch, I'd still be using them the same way. ... [I would] get another team but only one tractor (for a front end loader)."
|Team is on wagon built on pickup frame with a old truck bed on it. Leaders of a combine hitch.|
|Didn't see any teams working in the bighole when I went through but it was on Sunday and only one crew was working. They had 6 power bucks and a beaverslide working. They usually figure on getting 200 ton in a stack a day which seems a little optimistic to me (I'd keep the crew if they got 150).|
Dale says, "Just a couple more pics my sis found."
