It’s hard to understand how important your horses were before the combustable engine took over the hard farming labor. They helped plow, bring in hay, pull wagons . . . you name it. This is a shot of Eatonville pioneer and Ohop Valley farmer John Larson and his horse, probably taken in the early 1900s. It might just be me, but looks a little proud.
