Belle Meade Plantation

Dudeboy and I went to the Belle Meade Plantation in Nashville for their homeschool day program Slave Life at Belle Meade Plantation.

Slave quarters . . .

Dudeboy at the pump in front of the carriage house and stables. Belle Meade was different from most plantations in that its primary enterprise was thoroughbred breeding. In fact, many contemporary Derby horses (including Secretariat) can trace their bloodlines back to super stud Bonnie Scotland.

"Squeal like a pig" . . . Dudeboy standing next to a pig scalder.
