The following are the farm animals we have: the horse, the ass, the cow, the goat and the pig.
The following are the names of the cows: Casey, Old Daly, Young Daly, Moroney, Jim, Flanagan and Tobin.
Jack is the name of the ass.
Hag is the name of the horse.
Billy is the name of the goat.
When a man is driving cows he says, "How! How!"
The cabin in which the cows are kept is called the cows' cabin.
The litter we put under the cows is old hay and straw.
The cows are tied in the cabin with chains around their necks.
The tie put on a trespassing cow is called a sideline. The farmer makes the tie.
