old barns and other things.
we always had a team of horses or mules to pull the wagon and a saddle horse for dad. He went many a time to Carrollton to by our food on horse back.
dad milked 7 or 8 cows and we sold the milk in cream cans once a day a truck would pick the milk up.
One time grandpa Powell caught the truck diver stopping below his house and skimming off a container full and putting this in his cans. milk was graded by butter fat and the cream rose to the top. His milk was really rich. Grandpa put him out of a job real
One of Dillard's cousins hauled milk for dad when the girls were small. He was Leonard Atchison's son. this is Leonard on the horse.
