Notes:  In the foreground a four-wheeled wagon is being loaded with produce: a woman passes a basket of fruit up to a man, while a young boy harnesses the second of two horses to the vehicle. An African-American chops firewood at far right. However, of most interest to our project, is the adjustable (Dutch) hay-shed -- roof on four poles -- sheltering a full stack.

Index Words:  haybarn, haystacks, fodder, race, dance
Place:  United States
Notes:  A haybarn dance scene reminiscent of Mount's two in content and composition but not style. An African-American man and boy, the former picking a banjo, the latter dancing are watched by a woman holding a child and another male. There is hay on the floor, in a manger being chewed by a white horse, hanging from the loft, and in two neat stacks in the central background.

Index Words:  haycart, windrow, oxen
Place:  United States
Notes:  The first load is a family, far too well-dressed to be anticipating work in the hayfield in the background. The cart is pulled by two yoked oxen, guided by a man walking alongside holding a whip over their horns, since the left one seems slightly distracted by an excited dog. To the right five men turn windrows into low mounds.

Index Words:  haystack
Place:  Rhode Island
Notes:  Seen in the Los Angeles County Museum of Art in November, 2005. View of Mount Hope Bay, with a haystack very similar to the one in the 1858 sketch. This lonely stack is a hint of things to come (Stebbins). In the marsh landscapes, Heade would soon favor, the population of stacks would vary in numbers, apparent size and illumination, but their consistent shape would help provide perspectival depth into the flat tidal scenery.
