Somebody tell me about this old plow that followed me home. (age------manufacturer??)
Looks like it might have worn down several mules in its lifetime--------best I can tell, its rated @ 1 hp along with one raw-boned man with lots of grit and determination. Most likely this old plow spent it's days in the hill area of Mississippi.

Anson, I can't tell you much about the plow you have there except that it reminds a bit of one I have here. Mine is the original breaking plow used to break up the prairie on this century farm back in the early 1900s. Your handles are in much better shape as I think this old plow of mine has either broken or rotted them off. The wooden beam I assume is oak and has survived pretty well considering it sat outside most of it's life. I have stored it in an old log barn some 30 years ago to prevent further deterioration, but now the barn is in danger of collapsing on it. This old plow is a bit big for one guy with a weak back to try moving much but I'll try to get a picture of it if I get in the vicinity.
