Wonderful pictures of your daughter and "the kids". I loved going to Greenfield Village when I lived in MI but never was there for such live demos. Your daughter looks like she loved every minute.
She breathed oxen from the age of 12. She used the money she had saved to buy a new violin to buy her first team. Paul and Silas. She now uses John and David to keep her northern michigan drive plowed out, plus logging, and garden plowing.
I'm just a few miles from the home of the famous "Cowtown Rodeo", and I wouldn't be surprised of this bad boy is one of the stars there. There's nothing to give this guy some scale, but he's HUGE. And I've seen my fair share of bovines in my life.
Now you have done it. Asking for cows is worse than asking to see my home movies... Cattle and oxen were a huge part of our life while my middle daughter was growing up. Because of her I have a love of cattle particularly oxen.
