Down the road, there is an older couple who has a small hobby farm. We drive by there every day and love to look at the cows, horse, goats, and chickens. I saw the lady outside and stopped. I asked if she was still selling eggs. She is!
Then I asked if I could bring the girls down one day when they fed the cows so we could watch. We just happened to be driving by one day at feeding time and the cows were running across the pasture...It was the funniest thing! She said sure. She'd even let the girls help feed them. Then she said Red the horse needed some attention, too.
How cool is that? Country people rock! They are so open to sharing their lives and knowledge with others who are sincerely interested.
One day soon when the weather is nice we'll go up there to visit and see the animals up close. I had been telling the girls I was going to stop and ask her one day and I think they were surprised that I actually did it. Kenzie asked me if I was scared. I said I wasn't because the worst she could say was no.
It was another reminder that it never hurts to ask!
