I remember the scratched up forearms when shocking oats on my uncles farms. They did not buy new equipment if the old was still working. So I drove a tractor to pull a binder. However, Uncle Frank, who tended artillery horses in France on 40 & 8 boxcars kept a team of horses until he retired from farming. He used them occasionally to justify having them, so one day he hitched them to the binder. He drove over a bumblebee nest in the oat field. The bees swarmed out, attacking both Frank and horses. He jumped off and headed toward the fence line, while the horses just took off as fast as they could go with that binder clattering and bouncing behind them until it fell apart. My uncles hired a neighbor with a tractor-drawn combine to finish the harvest, and then bought an IH combine to be pulled by one of their Farmall Hs. The horses enjoyed a lengthy retirement.
