-Comment: Two kids in s2e3 (The Lady School Teacher, 1951), probably darkhaired Pat Mitchell as Ted and blonde Isa Ashdown. Rather few scenes of them and I think not even school scenes.

Pic 2 from s3e13 probably showing 22 yo Jean Willies with a black hat.

Many supporting actors, also some (teen) boys including Tommy Ivo (in jeans and a white hat ?, maybe also riding in s1e2) and Mickey Little in s2e24. I have to do more research. Especially Tommy Ivo is handsome and also did other Westerns.

For now rating at least 5-6.

By coincidence even a Christmas movie. And very nice Western setting.

I only have checked it briefly. Kids don’t appear that often.

Part of the Love Comes Softly movie series. Here I only have

Love’s Abiding Joy (rating 5) but this movie here has even better Western scenes. More movies on my bib overalls blog.

I have to recheck it more carefully also for other actors.

Rating ~5 for now.

-Available on DVD: VHS only ?

-I own: no
-Clothing occurence: medium ?
-Rating: 3/10 ?
-Rating: ***
-Comment: At least 2 younger boys (one blonde, one darkhaired), a teen boy and a girl in different clothes with belts. Should be set in the 1860s but some clothes rather look like the 1970s. Starring Jeff East and Kim Richards as kids.

I don’t know the complete movie, yet. There’s also an (unrelated ?) 1949 movie (also colorized available) called “The Big Cat” which is much more western like but set in 1933, but I haven’t found kids in there.

Rating 3-4 for now. Novel by Lew Dietz (A Seal called Andre).

-Rating: 5/10
-Rating: *****
-Comment: Several kids, I think mainly girls, maybe around 7-14 (of the mixed kids choir Kinderkoor Henk van der Velde and also other choirs) and also a woman in Cowboy/Western clothes. Obviously showing ep 18 (s2e11, 1970) which was about the Wild West.

During research for my other blogs, I stumbled upon this show, I never heard of. The 1st show featuring kids. There is even a DVD but only 3 complete episodes survived along some other fragments.

-Country: Canada
-Who in clothing: Matt ~13, Shirley 14, woman
-Available on DVD: no
B&W or color: color
-I own: no, partly TV recording
-Clothing occurence: low
-Rating: 5/10
-Rating: *****
-Comment: Bill Switzer as ranch boy Matt in blue jeans and a Cowboy hat in s3e2 (1998), also Meredith Henderson (pic 2 on the left) often wear a fedora and at least one women in a flat Western hat in s2e11.

Good family series. Also starring John White and Brendan Fletcher (nice haircut) but I think not wearing hats nor Western clothes.

I think few Western or ranch scenes and mainly focussed on the girl Shirley.

Rating 5.
