February 18, 2014: The Manure Ramp

There was a time every barn had one; an inclined ramp out the backdoor that lead to the manure pile.  This is the manure ramp behind my grandfather's barn, with Grandpa himself pushing yet another wheelbarrow load up to the pile.  When you consider the barn was build in 1909, and this photo was taken in 1975, just how many tons of shit did Grandpa push up that ramp over the years?
