First off Thanks to my Ghost Writer!
Kaitlynn also got to help milk the cows and feed the calves. Before it was time to milk she kept asking if she were going to be able to use a little stool and how big was the bucket and she kept talking about how she would pull the teats to get the milk out. She didn't know that this was a modern dairy farm and they use a double six milking system.
Kaitlynn had a blast, she was upset when she thought she had mud on her leg until we told her it was cow poop then she was OK with it.
Over all I think Kaitlynn had a blast, she was upset when she thought she had mud on her leg until we told her it was cow poop then she was OK with it. It was good to get out of the truck for more than just a couple of hours.
Leah was able to enjoy the farm too, she was allowed to run with the other farm dogs for the weekend. The only time we tied her up was when we went to town to get some supplies and when we went to lunch, then it was only because we were afraid she would follow us and get lost or go to the barn and we were unsure as to how she would react to the cows.
AJ's son played in the Pacific ocean for about an hour, by which time she was nearly frozen, yet we still had to drag her out of the water.
We even managed to get the truck down to the beach. No easy feat.
We watched the fishing boats come in and along with the many people on the beach there were several horses.
All too soon it was time to hit the road again. We headed to Texas where it suddenly turned into summer. It was in the 60's in Oregon and when we got to Laredo, TX it was over 100 degrees. More about that in my next post. Thanks for sticking with us on this continuing adventure.
