1562 The Paddock

This is the pioneer paddock beside the log barn painted in 1552 "1840 Farm". The split cedar rail fence would be hard pressed to keep anything out, let alone anything in. Like everything, fences need to be kept up. As they say, "Good fences make good neighbors." I guess that the saying means that it is easier to be friendly with your neighbour if neither of you trespasses upon the other's property or privacy. I would have really like the pioneer family. They knew how to work and build something from the wilderness. The hard work of the pioneers built Canada.
The sun sparkled across the old, crystalline snow pack. A heavy rain the following week would wash the snow away.
The horses in the accompany picture from around 1920 would have used this paddock.
