My life as a child on the farm and part of a family of 4 brothers and 10 sisters!!!!
I lived on a farm with horses, cows, pigs, chickens, ducks, dogs and cats. When I was very young we had horses for the early years of my childhood. We used the horses for a very few chores and of course sometimes we rode them. The horses were replaced with a tractor which could do more farm work and didn’t have to be fed every day. The cows on the farm had to be milked every morning and night. There were also little calves which had to be fed. The farm had many chores to be done everyday. Pigs and cows were fed 2 times a day. The chickens were also fed 2 times a day and the eggs were gathered. As a child on the farm I worked outside helping with the chores and also had to help in the house. With that many in the family there was a lot of cooking, cleaning and washing of clothing.
