The old barn on our farm was built in the late 1800s and was used for farming till about 2015. It still holds some machinery and other things. What I remember about this magnificent structure was the rope sheave chained to the roof. The sheave (pulley) was used with the old hay forks back when hay lofts were filled with loose hay. That practice would have been way before my time. All I remember about haymaking was the hay bales that were are long as I was tall! The sheave, no longer used for hay had become an amusement for me. A rope had been run through it and secured. The large hemp rope became a swing and the rope with knot tied at the end was a source of fun that would last for hours.
