    "Farm Animals "
    The animals we have at home on the farm are cows ,sheep and horses.The names we have on the cows are,Roan cow,Dromoland cow,and Tuohy's cow and White cow.We tie the cows every night in the cow house with chains.We bed them every night with straw .When we are putting the cows into the house we say "Howe Howe and when we are tying them we say "Set up cow "
    Besides having these animals on the farm we also have fowl which are very profitable .We have hens and ducks geese and turkeys to hatch in March or April and the hens and ducks in May.When the turkeys and geese are fat we sell them.We sell the eggs of the hens and ducks also.
