This is cool. I have got to show this to my cousin, the dairy farmer's daughter.

Hi Jan! I am Jean's cousin & the dairy farmer's daughter. What a cool shot of this statue.

It makes me think of the summer when we visited with an Amish family. They still milked their cows by hand and strained their milk just like this. Seems like in the faint reaches of my mind I remember doing the same thing many years ago before we got the pipelines for the milk on our farm.

Jan de Boer on December 16, 2009

Hi Joyfotos. Thanks for your kind comment.

I did the same in the sixties and the seventies and the early eighties. In 1983 we build a new cow shed with a milk tank, a milk room. There were also pipelines to bring the milk into the tank. In 2004 december i stopped because i got resistent aureus bacteries in the cows. I coudn't win from them.

Now I'm doing joyful things such as taking photographs and reading nice magazins and a book every now and then.

Best wishes from the Netherlands
