Farm Equipment

East of Chugwater, Wyoming.

I wonder how much old farm equipment is scattered across the Great Plains, sinking into the grass and creating rabbit habitat?  There must be a lot.  Eastern Wyoming is barely hospitable enough to support serious agriculture, at least compared to the heart of the Plains, and yet even here each wheat farmer seems to have his own bone yard of slowly rusting tractors, wagons, and other complicated machines that I can't identify (where I grew up, farming equipment was limited to lawn mowers).  And that isn't even counting the cars and trucks.
