I think my quizzes might be a little too easy. Everyone guessed a cow nose. Although no one guessed her name was Harriet!
So, here is another quiz for you. This one was Mark's idea.
Any idea what this is a picture of?
I have been asked to post some pictures of the blacksmith shop and tool shed.
I was asked to look for a Disston Saw. We have several in the tool shed.
Henry Disston (1819-1878)
The medallions on Disston handsaws changed more over time than any other feature on the saw. By using the medallion, you can estimate the age of the saw. This one is from the early 40’s.
There always seems to be something that needs fixed around the farm. So far Mark has fixed many feeding troughs, replaced a window with authentic, reproduced glass, and replaced part of the barn door that the cow kicked out.
The tools used at the farm are from the time period (early 1900’s) and a lot of them were sold through the Sears catalog.
Remember the quiz? Here is Hint No. 2:
You will find the answer somewhere on this wall.
If you think you know what the quiz picture is, you might be close, but I’m guessing you don’t know “exactly” what it is.
There are a lot of tools in the shop:
Hint No. 3:
It takes two people to use this tool.
Okay, here is the answer to the quiz:
Sheep scrotum. (Remember whose idea this was?)
And here is the answer to the question everyone is thinking right now:
Yes, they do shear it also!
Did anyone guess it?
