FARM GIRL # 6

Just checked and the assignment is out for the last "Farm Girl" post. We've had animals in our family from way before I was born. Chickens, pigs, horses, dog, horses, and more dogs and an ugly big white turkey with an attitude. Didn't have cats until after I was married. My first dog was my Grandparents big collie mix named "Watch". My Dad found him when he was a pup and he lived until I was about 10. That's me and my cousin Norman J. I didn't like to touch his fur coat.
I got over that.
More Dogs Dad and I with a horse. Could have been one of several



My brother and I on my Granddad's stallion with my Dad. This horse was scary.

I absolutely love old pics. I like to imagine what the families were like that are in the pictures and wonder why anyone would part with them.

Hi, thanks for your visit to my blog and your nice comment! I love your black and white photos here. The one of you with the colt is so cute! You were lucky to have so many animals around growing up. Loved seeing the shots.

Great Black & White photos.
Yours is indeed a grand life.
This is the sort of childhood I think most of us would have chosen.

Does Maryjane know that you are the original farm girl?

My poor Zina is still TERRIFIED of all dogs. You know what this means ... I have to get a dog. Any suggestions?
