What is a Swather? Would you hang one on your wall?

What is a Swather? Would you hang one on your wall?

So a couple of weeks ago while my husband and I were heading to a friends for "Taco Tuesday", I spied this beautiful creature in a field, and on the way home my husband stopped so I could get out and take some pictures.

After a little research I discovered that it's a Hesston Swather, maybe a grandpa swather because it was a little battered and the numbers were worn off. The grungier to me, the more a machine begs to be painted and I made a video of my process. 

If you're still wondering what a swather is, Merriam dictionary says it's a harvesting machine that cuts and windrows grain and seed crops! It reaps but it doesn't thresh. It's a baby combine! 😁

 

Swather prints available.
