Pipe Dawg

sunny 24 °C

Another bright and frosty morning on the Providence Farm in Marion, North Carolina. The outlook is towards the Blue Mountains - blue because when it is dusk, the mountains look blue - clever, eh? The guy who started Equip, Barry Fliltcroft has 2 horses you may be able to make out in the field. Horse-riding is a very popular past-time in this area. The type of horse used here is called a Tennessee walking horse - and its special gait means the ride is smooth going over the hills around the Appalachians. The next picture gives another taste of 'fall' in NC. It is more like summer for me, though, with the temperatures at 25 degrees and sunny. Supposedly it can stay this type of weather till December in Georgia, the neighbouring state.

Here is one of the trainers called Troy (cool names people have here in the US- and cool mustaches as well) displaying a tool that can be used along with a tripod to lift pipe from the well when you are trying to figure out what is going wrong. I think it may be called a 'Pipe Dawg'. I wonder if I will ever use some of these techniques out in the field.
