Glimpse of History

Recently while digging potatoes our friend Noah found a piece of metal crusted with dirt. Not just any piece of metal, though! With some of the dirt washed away, this appears to be half of a shoe for an oxen, as it is shaped differently from a horse shoe and appears to be one whole piece rather than having a broken end where it split in half. This is a very exciting glimpse into the possibility of how our farm was once worked! Who knows how far back in time, but it could be that once this land was plowed with oxen!
