Cows up close and personal
My children are not farm kids but neither are they city kids they fall somewhere in the middle. After apple picking in Brunswick they had a chance to see a mother cow and her baby up close. We have seen cows many times driving down the street but we have never taken the time to stop and look at them this close.
There was even one cow that came close enough for them to touch. We did make sure that they cows were safe to touch. We were assured that they were quite friendly and used to being petted.
This is a childhood experience that I am sure they will remember for a very long time the were both very excited and chattered about the cows and apples all the way home.
