Early Kentucky farmers were so proud of their livestock that they often had artists paint them. Robert Moore painted this scene about 1850 of imported short-horn cattle grazing behind Brutus Clay’s home, Auvergne, in Bourbon County. It is from the new book, “Collecting Kentucky 1790-1860” by Genevieve Baird Lacer and Libby Turner Howard with photography by Bill Roughen. Photo by Bill Roughen
