The other night the kids and I headed out to the backyard to read a few books. We've moved a bench I recently put back together toward the middle of the backyard area.
This is Precious. She is our neighbors cow but now is our friend too. She likes to come over anytime she spots us in the pasture. She comes over and we feed her apples from our apple tree.
Well two nights ago Grandpa stopped by and we told him about Precious and our reading books outside. I secretly think she wanted to be read to also. So we all headed outside. Unfortunately Precious was all the over at the other end of her field.
At first we couldn't even see her, but then I spotted her. We began calling and waving our arms for to her. We called and called and called. Even the kids were calling for her. She walked a little bit away from her barn and feeding area. Then she saw us and trotted over. I rarely see cows run but Precious must like us because she ran all the way over to us. We were all so happy. We began to reward her with plenty of apples from our tree.
Then Grandpa found some apples too and began feeding her.
Then we thought we should probably go inside, but then she gave us this face.
So we gave her a few more apples. But then it was time to go inside and go to bed. So we all said goodbye.
