Color or B&W?

(Be patient ... these may take a while to load, sorry. )

So I am finishing up the edits of photos I've been taking of a woman farmer in my town. She does it alone, handles 18-22 cows and sells raw milk. Relentless work.

These are a sampling of the photos and I'm pleased to say that a gallery wants to show them. However, I have not decided whether to go color or black and white. I may have a mix, but I am inclined to use color only when color is a part of the story. And part of me is wanting to go all B&W to give it more of a documentary feel and also get the viewer to focus on the forms and light. B&W seems to work well in the barn, but also works outdoors.

What do you think?
