Mowing with horses

Over the winter, we rebuilt a McCormick Deering Number 7 horsedrawn mowing machine; today, with the help of teamster Nick Hammond and his horses, Peter and Paul, we took the mower out for her maiden (at least in a resurrected since) voyage. We intend to use the mower to clip pastures behind our animals or in front of our animal rotations if the grass moves too fast for them to keep up. Our next project, a McCormick Deering grain drill is moving into the shop and repair work is scheduled to begin next week.
