  2. Ah, yes. There have been no hogs for decades. Fields around our farm acquired names based on whatever their purpose was at the time many years ago, and then they kept those names long after the original purpose was abandoned: the Hog Lot Field, which now has no hogs; the Hay House Field, which is not harvested for hay nor contains any "hay house"; the Orchard, which no longer retains a single fruit tree.

  3. You are quite correct. In addition, there is the baler field which many years ago had an old hay baler parked(and dead) there and is now long gone as well as the powerline field which is now divided into two fields with the part with the powerline in it owned by someone else. Oh well. whatever!!
