Not sure if it was intended, because I'm fairly new and was just curious, but all links to the image show only a thumbnail and "Protected Image".
I'll see if I can fix that.
Fixed!

I love old plows and farming equipment. Horse drawn plow even better. It was back breaking work and it was not very comfortable for the seat of your pants either. The picture shows the tough life of the farmer back then  The big beautiful house in the background and the family farm creates a wonderful picture. Thanks for sharing your picture with us.

I love old farm photos.  They also demonstrate how good hard work and fresh veggies can control weight!  (This from a woman who doubled her weight after she became ill and was bed-ridden for a few years.  Ouch.)
