I think the love of animals, understanding of wild things, and rural life in general get in your blood....at a very early age.
Kids raised on farms and in country homes tend to get a grasp on reality early in life.
Thus, above is Peggy using her dad as a saddle horse. Alas by the time I got the camera she had dismounted and was leading him around with her mama's bathrobe tie. Cooling him out I guess.
Anyhow, she watched the deer processing and likes the results, as do we. Venison sausage for breakfast, venison with California vegetables, rice and a nice salad for supper.....we aren't tired of it yet......
