Default Drag Scoop???

Cleaning up around the old barn behind my house and came across this piece of old iron lying on a ditch bank. Some people call it a Drag Scoop but what do you call it?

Fresno or Fresno Scraper, around here.

Since that's the name of a city nearby, in Central California, 'Fresno' might be a trademark.

Some of the early farming near Fresno started by modifying marshes with levees and drainage canals to create farmland. I expect that horse-drawn scrapers were used extensively.

Yours probably had wood handles like a wheelbarrow originally.
