A very rare case of farmer’s axe tan.

Yea… Latvia really has things like this still.
I see them sometimes when I am there in fields… never seen one being constructed before nor seen one so big.
Okay, what he is doing is building a ” cock”. First, you cut down the grass with a scythe. The women go behind and gather it and lay it out on tarps etc to dry in the sun which ” makes hay” then you start building a pile as a base. You kick the sides in and hollow out the middle enough to make a squat. You should be able to set in it Indian style and have some room. The size is up to the person but the bigger, higher. The harder it is to build and risk of it collapsing. What he is doing is like ” training the hay” he pulls up with one hand and beats down with a heavy cloth, burlap etc. and that gives it almost like a “c, or ( shape ” then it is repeated. Very labor intensive. Usually done in July and September by farmers for their farm animals to eat through out the winter months.
This very much looks like an authentic picture or the people visited a farm that uses these methods to gather hay for livestock.
I’m impressed you know this! How cool!
Thanks! I’m just a person who lives in the U.S. that happens to know some out of the way things. I read and travel as much as I can. I just turned 40 and I never want to stop learning!
If I were a rich man….
ZZ Top, the early years. When he was a youngster, Billy Gibbons didn’t even have a guitar. He actually had an axe.

I’m too sexy for my shirt,

I wish I could “like” your comment.
What’s with the white shorts and one lace trimmed leg?
It is just the right amount of fancy without overdoing it.
Ride the wild hay bale!
Oh, he’s a lumberjack and he’s OK!
he sleeps all night and he works all day!
HE CUTS DOWN HAY, HE EATS HIS LUNCH AND USES THE LAVATORY. ON SUNDAYS HE GOES SHOPPING AND HAS BUTTERED SCONES AND TEA! LOVE THE MONTY PYTHON REFERENCE.
Stick Legs digs it.
And she’s looking pretty good too, but that extra long rake is intimidating.
And they say the Amish are boring.
These people are definitely NOT Amish! What they’re wearing amounts to less than what the Amish consider to be proper underwear, firstly. Secondly, the Amish never pose for photographs.
AAAAND it says this is in LATVIA lol
It was a JOKE!!
At least we now know what Amish underwear looks like.
I don’t think so.
My god he DOES look like Rasputin!
