Disc Harrow

I found this old MF26 disc harrow just inside a gateway on a hill near Clun a couple of weeks ago. I think it had been there for a few years or so but it wasn't overgrown with brambles. I'm not sure if a small harrow like this with a width of only about 6 ft would be economical to use these days. It may well have been used within the cultivated field in which I found it or it may have just been dumped here having been used for some other purpose - such as blocking the gateway (as old heavy equipment is often used for). I liked the red paint that was still quite vibrant amidst the rusty browns and wanted to experiment with finding an interesting composition within its structure that I would enjoy painting.
