Notes:  This detail of activity to the right and beyond that shown in ID 2483 shows a group of six people consolidating small piles of hay (cocks) into larger, more weatherproof piles (known in Warwickshire, a few miles to the northeast, where I made hay as a child, as cobs). As usual, five women with rakes are helping one man with a fork who is lifting the hay to the top of the cobs. A musician stands to the right, encouraging their work. Just beyond them are three small boys, two running and one evidently being chastised by a woman.

Title of Work:  Dixton Manor, haymaking (detail: carting)

Citation:  
Index Words:  hayfield, wagon, horses
Place:  England
Notes:  This detail of ID 2454 at the far end of the rows being tedded in ID 2484 shows another loaded wagon, drawn as usual by four horses. This detail from a Cheltenham museum postcard shows more clearly the plume on the lead horse's head. Since each of the horse-teams has a different colored plume, it has been suggested that they identify different owners. Beyond the wagon, three women are using rakes to make cocks near the hedge. At lower right of the detail, two boys are chasing across the windrows.

It shows the family arriving at the house by coach, the farm buildings and fields of livestock of all kinds. The only hay visible is a small golden stack towards the left middle distance.
