jp1 Jersey Calf

Jersey Calf © J. Phillips

I find Jersey calves to be so endearing. The luminous eyes, the dark nose and that doe-like look of innocence and wonder get me every time. My uncle Howard had Jersey cows and calves. I loved going out to the barn for a visit but I always had to watch how close I got to them. Not because they were dangerous but because they had a bad habit of catching the hem of my cotton dress or the satin ribbon tied in a bow at the end of my braids with their tongue and sucking on it. What a sloppy mess.
The only member of the Jersey herd I didn’t like was the big sire of the herd . . .the bull. This bull had a massive neck and shoulders and towered over us. His bloodshot eyes followed us as he snorted and bellowed a great deal and when he did the stalls shook. I kept well away from his domain.
Its great to remember those carefree summers I spent there on the farm. I enjoy sketching and visiting my past. Hope you do too. Jenny

Corn Cribs are almost a thing of the past but they may still be found dotted around the countryside in Elgin County. This image was quickly sketched as an illustration for “Does It Pay?”.

jp10 Dandy Team

“Dandy Percheron Team” © J. Phillips

This team showed at the Bayfield Fair back in the early 1980’s. Dave and I went to the fair to take photos for a painting of Tom Penhale driving his team and wagon. It was a beautiful day and we had a super time. We saw other great teams including these Percherons. A visit to a country fair like this is always enjoyable.

jp11 Barn Lantern

Barn Lantern © J.Phillips

This old barn lantern was made by C. T. Ham Mfg. For more than a hundred years farmers have carried lanterns like this out in the wee hours of the morning as they go to bring in the cows for milking, or in the winter when the sun sets early and they have milking and other chores to do in the barn.
The lantern was set on a shelf or hung on a hook to brighten the dim interior of the straw strewn barn. There was always a risk that the lantern might fall or get knocked over and start a fire.
The warm glow that they emit cannot be compared to the stark brightness of the florescent fixtures of today but from a safety point of view we are so fortunate. Today lanterns like these remind us of the “good old days.”

It reminds me of days spent on my uncle and grandfather’s farms. What about you?

jp12 truck

GT Pickup Truck © J.Phillips

In the 1980’s Dave and I went to the Brigden Steam Show. I would display and sell my paintings and prints to the public outdoors. I took my 35 mm camera with me every where looking for material to sketch and paint. I had for young children and Dave worked shift work at Ford so I had to paint in my studio/kitchen while the kids slept and Dave worked.
This particular year they had some fine antique steam engines, and antique John Deere, lug tired tractor and many walking plows and this wonderful GT pickup circ 1923?. I loved it. The model T’s they made back in those days was so adaptable. If a farmer took off the back tire he could hook up a drive belt to power equipment. Trucks like the GT were very useful around a farm.
It’s wonderful that there are men and women out there who find old pieces like this and restore them and share them with all of us. A wonderful glimpse of the way we were.
