Antique Threshing Machine

Antique Threshing Machine

I was reviewing images from my trip to Billings a few weeks ago and found today’s post. When I took that first ride out to see the ranch where I would be shooting I noticed this same donkey shading himself using what appears to be an old pre-combine threshing machine.  The donkey was standing at the other end when first noticed but we never stopped to make the image.

Over the next few days we passed this same machine several times and no donkey. On the very last departure from the farm there it was again – only on the other side of the machine. Had to stop and make the image….looks a bit like a large mechanical anteater under which the donkey is shading itself.

Simply makes me laugh..
