Still farming with horses in the 1950s
In the 1950s, my mother-in-law, then known as Judy Hellesen, moved with her family to Raymond, Wisconsin in Racine County. Earl Jensen, a local farmer (no relation), was still farming with horses. My mother-in-law took this photo of him at work. She even rode one of the horses (one liked to be ridden, the other did not). Raymond is still an area rich in agriculture.
