After Alicja and I were done in the library we made our way back downstairs and into the music room, where we found a piano, a record player, and a pipe organ.  Like the other rooms we had seen, this one was littered with all sorts of things, from hats to candlesticks to old papers.   And, quite uniquely, lots and lots of pictures of cows.  The office is through the music room and out the back, where we found a desk stacked with books on animal husbandry, logs of cattle breeding, pocket-sized guides on milk pasteurization, and letters of correspondence.  Photos of cows were everywhere.  The original owner bred many types of cattle, including the Aberdeen Angus, the breed to which our lovely “guard bull” out front present day belongs.
