This week, the Reese family was fortunate enough to get to help with our
daughter’s preschool animal day. In our rural community, several of the kids
in our daughter’s preschool are from farms. So, on a pleasant spring day,
locals bring some gates and some critters and set up a fun farm day right outside the church preschool. We brought two sheep, along with some lamb recipe cards and some fun sheep stickers to hand out to the kids.
The event was a huge success, with a young boy staring up at a massive Case IH tractor saying, “This is the best day EVER” with the sincerity only a four-year old can muster. There were cows, a goat, ducks, rabbits, a pony, donkeys, pigs and a preschool full of happy kids.
When our four-year-old daughter’s class came through the display, we were
very proud parents as she told her classmates that the sheep were Horned Dorset ewes.
