Photo caption was created by bitzi and posted on bitzidoodles.blogspot. Bitzi is my sister, and she introduced me to the concept of blogging back in February of this year; she is a Graphic Artist and does digital doodlings on her blog.
1850's Farm and Town at Living History Farms
The two photos were taken August 13th, 2005 at the Living History Farm near Des Moines, Iowa by photographer Virtual Farm Boy. He wrote,"Oxen are regular cattle who go to special school for four years to learn to become oxen." The photos were shared on flickr.com and can be viewed here along with copyright information. Living History Farms has a website here. Living history museums and events have helped to keep the tradition of oxen alive in this country.
