Country Girls


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.



And here are all  some of her ponies, safe in Finnbar's kennel, where the coyotes and other wild things can't get them. Of course if Finn was in there I think he might have some ideas for them, but he was outdoors. 


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......

Studies show that country kids are physically healthier too when they start school, fewer respiratory problems

I think most country kids are healthier and know how to work.
Your heat must be working good this year. The baby looks like she is warm and toasty. Love her hair, reminds me of my daughters Hair at that age.

Jan, I have read that and that Amish children are particularly healthy. Alas ours were sick more than normal, but I think it may be because we lived in town when they were small. Constant diesel trucks idling at the nearby truck stop....

Ellie, she is so hot blooded just like her dad. Keeping her in warm clothes is a full time jobs. My hair and my girls' hair was just like that too.
