Off from the left of the store, there  were two large two story barns where grain , hay , cotton , etc. were stored..  One contained stables for the horses and mule and a shed for cows.  We would have 12 to 20 cows all the time.  They as well as the horses had names. Occasionally Daddy would give each one of us a calf that would be ours and we would raise that calf and when we sold it the money was ours.  We usually saved it back for college.  I guess this was like the 4-h club but we never heard of one of those .
