Yesterday the boys traveled over to Wells Maine to take part in a "Plow Day".
 Due to my work schedule, I only caught the end but all reports say wonderful day.
 The weather held out ( although the wind had a bite) and 6 teams of horses showed up.
The farm land was beautiful making it ideal conditions for the horses and Teamsters to work.

the teams about to start a new row

every one lined up / resting before the next pass
the horses just stand in waiting and rest while the Teamsters , talk plow talk

This team belonged to Rick Chase, the owner of the farm, I arrived late and did not get the name of the horses or the young Teamster in training 

It was wonderful to see a young person learning.
Here they are clearing some silage from the plow blades


this is at the opposite end as they turn the teams to make another pass
