Fridays on the Farm

Sometimes when "city folks" visit the Koons Zoo, they ask, "So what do you do for fun WAY OUT HERE?!?"

I assure you that there has never been a time where we've sat around looking at each other in boredom saying, "What are we gonna do?  I'm so bored.  There's nothing to do."  Because there's ALWAYS something to do.

Sometimes we do hard farm girl/boy stuff....
Not pictured because we're too busy working to take pictures, obviously.  Actually, that's not entirely true. The truth is that after working like a farm girl, I am not photogenic in the least.  And if you think I'm going to be posing for a picture while I'm all hot and sweaty with my ponytail plastered to my head, mascara streaked down my face, lipgloss worn off, while wearing my swimsuit, cutoffs, chore boots, & pink workgloves, you are sadly mistaken. 

Sometimes we go fishing.....
Sometimes we take our livestock for a leisurely stroll through the countryside....

Sometimes we shoot stuff...

Sometimes we chop stuff...

Sometimes we start a fire (outside and ok inside too), kick back and eat s'mores...

Sometimes we go on 4 wheeler rides......

Sometimes we pet our peacock....

Sometimes we play catch the escapee bunny...

Sometimes we take our cow out for a spin....
 

And sometimes we pretend we're "urban" hairstylists and play with our duck's 'fro (doesn't everyone?) and then call him the The Rapper  Quacker known as TuPacTuQuack....


So I guess the answer to that question, "What do you do for fun way out here?" is simple, "Oh you know, NOTHING....." 

Have a great Friday whether you're on the farm or in the city!
