Living on the Farm
Today I want to tell you more about how life is here on the farm. Out here, it is the best for me, and I am pretty sure my family would agree with me. There are a lot of different animals on our farm. For example, we have a milking cow. I am the worst one to milk her! I just can't do it right! Well, maybe my brother is the worst, he can't do it either! When you are milking her by hand it takes about a half an hour or 45 minutes. Now we bought a milking machine and it only takes a few minutes.
There are also horses that I love riding. I am going to go to a summer camp and take horse riding lessons, how exciting!
There are also sheep, 10 or 15 of them. The only thing I do with the sheep is pet them. There are also a couple of llamas, they are there to protect the sheep from predators like coyotes.
We have one cat, one kitten and two dogs. One of the dogs killed my first chicken! I had only had the chicken two days, and the dog decided to eat her. I was sad, because I had been waiting so long to have a chicken again.
Now I finally have a whole flock of chickens! They are somewhere safe away from the dogs. There are 15 chickens, and it is my job to go out there every morning and feed them and water them. Then I take them outside and put them inside in the evening. This fall I think they will be laying eggs. Chickens are my favorite animal in the whole wide world.
That's all for now! Remember, you can ask questions in the comments section of my posts.
