Here we have three photos from different sources that I believe show the progress of filling the hay rick. First, we see an empty hay rick with a big pile of hay behind it. Yes, this may have been the end but humor me, since it is a nice picture of an empty hay rick.
This one, I can’t be sure exactly what it is, but it looks like loading the hay rick, or possibly putting harvested wheat into a thresher?
Finally we have a full hay rick with the notation “Donald Hintz” on it. I assume that is he standing on the back of the wagon.
Being a city girl, I don’t know an awful lot about farming, so if you know more than I do, please chime in with a comment to correct me if I’m wrong.
