|Especially when the kids were little, we relied on neighbors and family to help get the ranch work done. P.S. that is Eric with his finger in his nose! :)|
- Eight hungry barn cats,
- Seven Flint Hills pastures,
- Six cows a'calving,
- Five awesome kids!
- Four special friends,
- Three old red barns,
- Two cotton work gloves,
- and a Cow Dog to work beside me.
Neighbors work together to get cattle rounded up and vaccinated, to build fence that borders between their pastures, to burn pastures and to help out a neighbor who can't get the job done for some reason. We have friends we can call on to help feed cattle if we need it, some to call for advice on cattle, and some to help put cows back into the pasture when they've gotten out. Neighbors are one of the best parts about living in the country...and they may not actually live right near each other, but they are close enough to help out when called. So, nine helpful neighbors is a gross understatement!
I keep checking to see what you'll say next. :)ReplyDelete
i do the twelve day of Christmas with my hubby only and the boys love singing the 12 Days of Christmas to him when he gets a new gift. It's lotsa fun.
