Photo Number 961

This is a photo from 1934.  I have no idea where I got it.  It was one of those photos that slipped through the cracks in my scanning naming system.

Edward and the bull Tim 1934

That looks like a Guernsey bull to me..but I am no cow expert..even though I have milked a few milk cows.  In days gone by, the farmers were very proud of their bulls especially ones that threw good offspring.  To have a photo with a promising or proven bull was quite normal. ( I think they liked to show off the photos to their friends.)

Thanks for stopping by.  Do come again:)

  1. Tim the Bull looks rather small. Maybe he's just a little bull. :)

  2. Do you think it also didn't hurt business if they had a good bull? Didn't they stud out their bulls? You can tell how much I know about cattle.
