Citation:  IH133173
Index Words:  harvest, mistake

Period/Style:  twentieth century
URL:  http://www.corbis.com/
Citation:  ZN001634
Index Words:  haystack, hay-bundles, workers
Place:  China
Notes:  The Corbis caption cannot be refuted from the visual evidence, but the sheaf-shape of the bundles is unusual for hay. The perspective is from above; it shows the way the bundles are carried on a shoulder-pole and the way the bundles are arranged in the stack in this scene near Shanghai..

Artist Country: American
Title of Work:  Haystack against a beaver slide
Date of Work:  c 1992
Medium:  photograph
Period/Style:  twentieth century
URL:  http://www.corbis.com/
Citation:  ML001792
Index Words:  beaver-slide, haystack
Place:  Colorado
Notes:  The wooden beaver-slide was a favored device for lifting loose hay to the top of a high stack, especially in the Rocky Mountain region. It is still used in some areas, notably in the Big Hole Valley of western Montana. Here, according to the caption, it is being used to prop up a haystack in Grand County, Colorado. The disrepair of the slide seem to confirm that it is no longer functional.

Notes:  The beaver-slide in this picture, also in Grand County, Colorado, seems to be in better condition than is the one in ID 1796. Certainly the part being lifted by the two men seems capable of lifting loose hay to the top of the stack.

Notes:  The contents of the donkey cart, near Ceanuri in the Basque country, appear to be grass (undried) rather than hay. It is common in northern Spain for grass to be mowed in the meadows and then carried directly to the mangers of cows in the dairy.

Citation:  OF004421

Place:  Netherlands
Notes:  A colorful but enigmatic scene near Lisse in the Netherlands. Why are the tulip petals piled on the heap of hay? Is it hay? The coarse texture suggests straw. Perhaps the materials are being composted for fertilizer.
