Irrigate and guess

We haven't had a year where we didn't need to turn on the irrigation the entire month of June.  But now it's July, it's hot, and it's already dry.  We started irrigating our pasture so that our cattle can eat well-watered pasture grass.

It's also super fun for our kids ... and looks fun in general.  As our boys and niece were running through the giant sprinkler, a neighbor yelled from his car, "Where do I get in line?"

It's surprising how an irrigation system feels.  Not like a rain, or even a downpour.  It's hard, like unpleasantly so.  The cattle like it though - they stand under it when they can.

My mom took this picture and sent it to her friends.  Her subject was 'sculpture at the barn.'  They had some good guesses ... anyone here?  You know, besides our own art park.

They kind of look like bike racks, so I'm going to go with... cow racks. It looks like you have enough to park a lot of cows. 2 hour limit.

Are they clothes hangers for giants?
