Great winter capture, but what is he doing? Looks like plowing or something like that, but in your temps I know that's not possible. Modern-old time snow plow? #10941146

Who would have thought that a picture of a guy spreading manure would make such a beautiful picture Terry. But with the horse, the farmer with that traditional hat that dosn't cover the ears, the snow falling, it comes together for one gorgeous look my friend. #10941650
