1566 Pioneer Paddock

The split cedar rail fences were falling down. They were also overgrown with brambles and nasty shrubs with thorns. I imagine at one time that the livestock even had the paddock churned into mud as is the case with most barn yards. Thick grasses dominated the snowy paddock. The sumacs were spreading their influence as well. In another twenty years there would not be much left to identify the pioneer lives that were lived here. The foot prints in the painting belong to me...
The horses in the photos below would have used those paddocks.
