    I'm sure I just heard Ruth say "bladders pigs" instead of "pigs bladders! Did anyone else notice that? Anyhoo, it gave me a little chuckle. I really love these historical series. They're brilliant!

    There are people in the Appalachians of the US who insulate their houses with newspaper and use kerosene ( highly flammable) for heating and lamps. It's not uncommon for them to only travel into " civilization" once a month to get their government checks from the post office and pick up staple supplies. Then they travel back to their ( hollow) pronounced holler which are treacherous unpaved dirt roads that wind up the mountain. The make their own alcohol called moonshine. And when the weather gets cold they bring their animals into their house with them. They live like a large clan and when you enter into their hollow you have to be careful because they have signs warning- shotguns. I don't know why they haven't done a series on these pockets of families at least a book perhaps. I think it would be sad to film. Those generational families have been there since at least mid 1800's. We have Amish of course but they aren't as secluded from the outside world. The amish have their own doctors , communities, accessibility, and schools etc. The folks in the hollows do not.

    The MRS. SAYS. My Father was a good animal husbandry Man, we had a ranch in California and we were forever doing something for the horses, sheep and cows my parents owned, always doctoring them, looking for any injuries, and caring for their hooves, as my Father said "NO HOOF, NO HORSE" always, always look at the bottoms of their hooves, it's imperative to know how painful a hoof injury can be, Dad was always caring a bottle of Jensens Blue, a wound dressing to dab on scratches and cuts, a big ill tempered mare bit a young filly so hard she tore off some flesh, wow Dad was walking through the pasture looking for that kind of problem, good thing he did she was bleeding and had blood all the way down her leg, damn we got her out of there fast and called the vet to sew her up and kept her isolated and gave her sugar-water and plenty of grain and apples and just stayed close to her to let her know she's going to be safe, Dad said I think she might have died if we hadn't found that nasty gash. It never ends when you have animals, so be diligent and care for your stock.

    Bit of a over exaggeration on the shoeing bit! Driving the nail in the wrong way will lame a horse but it won’t be for life! Usually if a nail starts going the wrong way the horse will react and pull the foot away. It’s damn near impossible to drive a nail so far into the foot the wrong way to cause a serious bony infection! A hoof abscess is sure to form but they very very rarely lead to lifetime lameness. The nail would be removed and the resulting hole would be treated with a antiseptic preparation of the time.

    I've watched these series many times, from Green Valley to Wartime Farm, and now I'm back for another viewing. A few years ago I had a housekeeper and she'd sit and watch with me. She called Ruth her " Hero " because of her stalwart, dutiful ways. As a widower, it was nice to share the series' with someone who enjoyed it as much as I. ( Alex can condescend to Peter a bit too much for my taste).

    I had a Gloucester Ol' Spot when I was a child - about 70 -71. I, being 7- 8 used to ride her like a horse. Great animal, but, as the man says 'nothing as obstinate as a pig'.

      @Sheila T. i get that but every equipment they used was from the victorian period and it would just have seemed fitting for the bike to have also been from then. It just keeps with the authentic theme.

    Seems to me like Christmas Puddings were the precursors to Fruit Cake in the US. Fruit cake was more popular a few decades ago. It’s seen as a stereotypical Christmas dessert now (in movies) but I don’t know of any family that actually has fruit cake at their family dinner.

    In the US pudding is a custard type of dessert.

    I really enjoyed this series. Being an American and my ancestry is in England, Wales, Irish, and Scottish. I enjoyed this immensely. I knew the Victorian Farmers worked hard. I now know why in my parents ranch why we worked hard. It is in our blood. My husband and I have a ranch in Texas. We worked hard. Now it’s up to our sins and their families. We oversee everything now. Here in Texas our weather is very unpredictable. In winter it can be mild to cold weather. Mainly rain. Hardly no snow or sleet. Summer sweating heat. I can’t imagine back in the old days coping with the heat. Winter yes heat no. Now I know where I get that drive for working hard in our ranch. It’s in my blood.

  • Marige OBrien

    Eh-eh. I found a discrepancy. Around 38:00, Peter says that during the Victorian period there was no fixed idea of St. Nicholas and that it wasn't until the 1930's when Coca-Cola... etc. (you can go to that point for the rest.) No, no. And I'm very surprised to find such a glaring error. Clement C. Moore first published "A Visit From St. Nicholas" (or, Twas The Night Before Christmas) in 1823, even before the Victorian era began. And it was immediately a big hit. In it, there is a very detailed description of St. Nicholas, from his clothes to his pipe and beard, even his sleigh and his reindeer. Though Coca-Cola did have a famous campaign in the 1930's, that was long after St. Nicholas was firmly established in his traditional wear... and even though it was "only" an American poem, I believe it was popular throughout Christendom. Where Peter got this nonsense about Coca-Cola I don't know. He really should have checked his facts.

    Clumper is lame at 3:06 and looks due to this careless and ill fitting harness set up, it breaks and falls striking his left hind pastern, Clumper lifts his leg in pain on the first stride. The wood is almost touching his legs at a halt when Alex reacts to it coming unhitched. Check your horse after such an accident!! This would be devastating for a true farmer losing his power source. I love this show but for the lack of competent horse management and maintenance. They don't take care of themselves in this environment and work load.
