Sunday I took the nieces and nephews to the farm where we get our milk.
I showed them the milking room
Then we found the girls out by the hen yard
It's so fantastic to see the look on the faces of kids when they have these
close encounters with animals.
The youngest boy wanted to know how the cows made the milk.
I pointed to the udders and explained that it just 'happens' when a cow is
going to have a baby. Just like human mom's when they have a baby.
And then there was much giggling about 'boobies' and such.
We had a look at the ducks and chickens...or should
I say they had a look at us...
This rooster was giving us the evil eye...
I miss having chickens...the clucking and the way they putter around pecking and scratching.
Maybe come springtime we'll get some more.
No sense having them now as they don't lay much in the winter and it's better to
start with young pullets of which there isn't any of around right now.
Here's the original farmhouse...
So cozy on a grey day to see the wood smoke curling up out of the chimney.
Thanks girls...see you next week!
