Rocky Mountain Mystery Photo 11-24-14

Our winners, Charles Ryden of Silt, Colo., and Gary Binger of Hay Springs, Neb., identified the object as a trip for the hay sling. It is the trip that dumps the hay out of the bottom of the hay sling after it has been lifted up and into the hay mower. There is a small trip rope that goes up with the hay load and is pulled to release the hay. This devise locks together and then comes apart when the rope is pulled.

Do you know what this is?

Albert Barnes of Ft. Collins, Colo., is wondering if any of our readers know anything about this mystery object.

We have a winner!

We received 40 entries for last month’s mystery photo, ALL correct!

Our winner, Vicki Schaaf of Thornton, Colo., identified the object as a Calf Blab or calf weaner. It attaches to the calf’s nose so that when the calf tries to nurse the mother is poked and refuses to allow the calf to nurse.

Mark Kendell of Golden, Colo., sent in the object. Thanks for sharing this mysterious photo with our readers.
