We’ll reveal the answer in next month’s Mystery Photo Contest, which is published in the last issue of the month. Entries can be mailed or faxed to (970) 352-7164.

We received 50 entry for last month’s Mystery Photo!

Our winner, Carol Harhaway of Brighton, Colo., identified the object as a “Kow Kant Kick.” She said her grandmother used it on her milk cows that wanted to kick forward and kick off the old surge milkers. Her grandma also had one of the first Brown Swiss herds in the state of California. Bellow is an illustration that Carol provided.

The photo was sent in by Donald Olson of Holyoke, Colo. Congratulations to Carol Harhaway and thanks to Donald Olson for sharing this photo with our readers! And thanks to everyone who entered!

We still need your help – and your Mystery Photos. If you have an antique piece of equipment, or know of an unusual or unique building or landmark (no photos of obscure landscapes) take a clear photo of it and send it to the Fence Post’s Mystery Photo Contest.
