containers – photo challenge

22 Jul

So the photo challenge this week has been interesting, to see how many different containers our world holds, and our world being a huge container, so how does one top the world?  How about a throw back to a basic container.

So my container is something related to what we do for our business.  Horses.

How do horses and containers relate besides the saddle that is a type of container for the rider, I was thinking something even more basic.  You see our horses love green grass but where we live we get some really heavy snows.

So what are we to do with no green grass available,

we turn to the easy container of twine.

Yes, that is correct this simple container for us means happy, healthy, horses all winter.  Why?

Because it creates containers for hay for winter storage.

We spend part of the summer putting up hay for our winter season,

this simple container comes in multiple sizes depending on which baler we are using.

We just finished putting up 1,000 + bales in squares, this container is strong and holds

50-70 pounds in a square bale

and 500-900 pounds or even up to 1,200 pounds in a round bale.

It is versatile and makes just what we need.

So for us it is a simple container yet it is a vital container for the lives of our horses, on our ranch.
