The Old Vrana Farm

I'm posting the picture of me and the horses mainly to continue yesterday's discussion of the relationship of the barn and corncrib to the windmill at the old Vrana farm. The windmill doesn't show up very well but it is over the top of my head in the picture. I would guess this was taken in about 1941. The vegetation behind the horse is Gypsum weed which had large, trumpet shaped,white flowers with a very distinct odor and produced a round, stickery, seed pod. Also including the 1938 Air Photo that was used for the SCS farm plan. The gullies show up as do a couple white dots of old straw stacks.
