Harrowing life for a dog

Jean-Claude and his dog in tractor cab


Went to Lionel Gosseaume over at Choussy (AC Touraine + parcels in AC Touraine-Oisly) last Friday to have a look at his Meslier Saint-François (to be subject to a separate post) and met Jean-Claude, who is the owner of the vines Lionel rents on a long-term deal. Jean-Claude was preparing some ground for Lionel's next parcel to plant with a harrow hooked up to his tractor. His spaniel was present to ensure that the work was up to standard. 


 
Just checking...!
