And the Winner Is...

It seems we have some pretty smart pups in our bunch. Congratulations to Maggie, Mitch, Penny, Poppy and Patches for coming up with the correct answer in my last post. Yes, that old rusty antique thingy in the photo was a corn planter. Kind of like a post-hole digger with a trigger to drop a few kernels of corn in the hole. Kudos to Noah and Bussie, too, for coming up with some whacky wild guesses. We love the way your minds work! Hee hee! I wonder if there is a patent on fumigating calf-pullers? Hmmm...
Anyway, we enjoyed the answers so much, we jumped in the car and went searching for more country antiques to share with you. My Girl took this photo of me sitting between her and Mom, who was driving. I like the angle of this photo, because it looks like I'm the one driving!
So here is what we found. It's leather, metal and wrapped with chains. Does anyone know what this is? The owner said he has had a lot of people ponder and take a guess, but very few get it right. He gave us a hint: it came from a farm in Arkansas.
Happy guessing!

Tell, that contraption looks like something Hannibal Lecter might wear lol.

Oooo, congrats to those clever dogs who guessed correctly. I have absolutely no idea what the latest thing is. I'm guessing the chains are for lifting or dragging something heavy. Maybe it goes over a cow's head or something if you want to take it for a walk? Erm, can you tell I'm stumped? J x

We give up on this one! We even showed the picture to dad and he has no clue either! We can't wait till the answer is revealed!

Love ya lots

Oh Will...

Can I guess on your latest gadget or is it too late? Can it be a blinder for horses so that they can't see what is going on around them? I didn't think they were made of metal but then that is an old one and so just maybe it is a blinder?
