Hay Season on the Haythorn

When I visited Haythorn Land and Livestock in Nebraska years ago, they were still putting up hay using a beaver slide stacker and a team of horses. I’ve never published this photo, but whenever I’m going through my photo archives it always grabs my attention. There is a lot going on in this photo, and the composition of the clouds, the tractor and the beaver slide seem to all fit together so well.

  1. The Haythorns are very hard working ranch people with a long heritage of what a true pioneer family has done for several generations!!!
    They are a kind and friendly family as common as the day is long! The Matriarch Beldora passed simete back and she is missed by a whole ranching community! The name i s being carried forth through the generations and greats coming up!
