The farmer’s wife

In Lexington last Friday, Catherine and I had an interesting conversation. We were on our way to the Kentucky Horse Park and we passed by several farms- Beautiful farms with black wooden fences, countless cows and other farm animals, barns, etc. You get the picture.. Anyway, here goes our conversation..

Cat:   When I grow up, I’ll marry a farmer.

Chrsi: A farmer? Why?

Cat: I want to live on a farm and have lots of animals.

Chris: So, you want to drive a tractor and work in a farm?

Cat:  NO! That’s the farmer’s job. I’m the farmer’s wife. I feed the animals, play with them and all that.

Chris: How are you going to feed the animals?

Cat: I’ll grow and sell vegetables and fruits. I’ll grow carrots and such for the rabbits, pigs, and horses. I’ll use vegetables, dirt, and water to make ‘slop’. O… I will also have sheep and cats.

Here are a few images from the horse park 🙂

It was almost 90 deg F that day.. so it didn’t smell so good around the stables.
