Vintage Thingies Thursday: Old Yoke



It's the last week of VTT for 2009,  I can't help but had to post my last entry for this year  though I am kind of busy but VTT has to be first before all the errands ^_^ This YOKE is hanging on the wall where hubby and I used to eat brunch every Tuesday. Way back in the Philippines where I come from many farmers still used a yoke specially those farmer who are farming in the rice field. Because the rice field is watery, wet and muddy I guess no machine could till that land it will get stuck. But I don't know here in the USA if some people still use a yoke since I noticed every farmers has their own tractors. I don't know how old this yoke is but I guess this is pretty vintage.

That is a wonderful piece of history. To think of all the advances in farming over the years.

Yes, this yolk is very vintage. These were used many years back before moderation stepped in. I still see them in antique places, but they are not longer used. Brought back some vintage memories.

I think they are still used in the far east, there is a lot done with manual labor that we in the west see only machines doing. Very cool for me to see I was a farmer's daughter!
