Graham family farm, late summer of 1971.
It's harvest time for the hay, as the elevator and wagon are out, looks like the wheat has already been harvested and the straw is already in the haymow. The hay in the upper field has yet to be bailed as there are rows in the field.
The circle is the horse walker, which was later moved to the indoor arena which was not yet added on to the new barn.
The horse wagon is out, so looks like we are heading out for a horse show, 4-H, fair... or just getting back, so it's probably the weekend.
The small arena was for Poco Leo Huck our stallion, the arena to the left was for our show horses and the pastures behind the farm were grazing space for the rest of the horses.
The willow tree in the background became a circle after a series of falls from storms past, with the creek running through it, a special place hosting many memories.
