In winter the horse has a lot of work to do. When the farmer is driving the horse and wants him to go hard he says - "Come up! or Hub off! When he wants him to go easy he says. "Site!" The horses are usually foddered with oaten-straw. In the stable the horses are tied to a stake by a head collar and a rope.
When pigs are being called "Ba! Ba"! is said. They usually have two houses a house in which to eat their food, with no roof on it and a house in which to sleep which has a roof. In Summer the pigs sleep out in the open. Their bed is straw usually.
The sheep lives out on the field always. He eats grass and turnips.
The goat is called the poor man's cow because many of the poorer people have to depend on the goat for milk. The goat has no house to sleep in. She eats ivy, grass
