We are a busy people. As I type...not at home...my laundry is piled, dishes unwashed, and a mile-long list of things to accomplish. Pressures of life seem to crush us.
What would the world be like without our animal friends? We spend hours a day with our farm animals. Milking cows, gathering eggs from our chickens, herding our sheep, laughing at our ducks, petting the cat and dogs are teaching our boys responsibility and compassion. My middle son is known in our farming community as the animal whisperer. He can get any of our animals to do just about anything we need them to.
I think this fasciniation is universal.
