Shelter from the sun

We've finally had a break from the last 2+ weeks of sweltering 100 degree weather here in NWAR.  About two weeks ago we brought in our second cutting of hay at the start of the inferno.   Luckily I took the time to finish my tractor canopy right as the heat was coming.  A neighbor fab'ed the frame for me in exchange for some brush-hogging.  I got it on in time for 106 degree raking and haying.. It was a lifesaver!  The frame is painted John Deere green and the top is a canvas tarp I got at the local farm supply.  Stretched and screwed into the frame, it's held up to tree limbs quite well so far.
