Hey, who here lives out in rural areas in the United States or America. Do any of you consider yourself "hillbillies"? I am not quite a hillbillie type (lived in the suburbs most of my life), but here in Snohomish, you are pretty much in a growing small town (just south east of Everett) and you are never far from farm lands or ranches (there is even a valley full of farm lands you cross when heading towards Snohomish from Mill Creek). Who here has farm animals (such as horses, cows, pigs, donkeys, chickens, etc)? I never owned any farm animals myself, but do know people who have horses and sometimes even cows.
Here are some videos you might like:
2. Day in the life of a west Texas cowboy - interestingly, my grandfather on my mom's side (Joe Shackelford) used live in west Texas as a kid (long before moving to the Sacramento area back in the 1920s and 30s), so he was probably familiar with that kind of lifestyle. I live a long ways from Texas, but Eastern Washington and even Montana is likely to make you feel like you are in cowboy country, full of farm land, deserts, mountains and even farm animals

|Here is a picture of some alpacas at Remlinger Farms at the Fall Festival near Carnation. Remlingers is definitely one of the more popular pumkin patches to go to in my opinion in Halloween season. If you have never driving on highway 203 between Monroe and Fall City here in Washington, it is a very scenic route going through the small towns of Duvall and Carnation and transversing much of the farm lands in the sky valley and can make a good alternate route going to the Issaquah and North Bend area from Snohomish (as opposed to taking Interstate 405 to 90).|
