when we bought the old farm we were told that the farm house was built in 1834 but the barns were built some time before that as was the old custom. after celebrating canada day yesterday i realized that our house is older than canada & was actually built in the dominion. cool, eh?
most of the weird little bibs & bobs we have no idea what they are or were or if they have any value. so i thought i'd post them on here to see if anyone of the world wide web knows what in the world they are or what to do with them.
it would be such a waste to just chuck 'em or leave them in the bottom of a disintegrated manger or delapitated hay loft. and they tell us the long story of the farm itself & what is was used for, the kind of people who worked it & how they worked it & the older ways of life. it would certainly enlighten some of our curiosities about different buildings & how we could restore them.
so here's number one:
i think i know what this might be but not super sure.
location found: the old chicken coop on top of some laying boxes
|i'd say the old coop needs a little tlc before the chickens move|
in at the end of the month
|and the item in question|
|the holes at the bottom are too big for feeding|
also found this thingy ma-bob... and in it's original packaging too
