    Second one appears to be a harrow. The first one is hard to tell from the picture, almost looks like a planter of some sort.

    Second one is definately a plow or harrow depending on who you are talking to. First one after closer review appears to have been used to weed between rows while crop was growing.

    I just googled pictures of antique horse drawn farm equipment and started going through them. But we have also had a few plows in the past. I just couldn't remember if it was plow or harrow and they are basically the same machine. Harrows are usually a bit lighter duty and sometimes had spring tines where the plow was more rigid and the blades on the tines could usually be changed for different applications. They also spelled it different ways either plow or plough.
