When a City Girl Goes Country

By Annette Bridges

Oh, how I love my country life. Let me count the ways. I love driving a truck and trailer for my hubby to load round bales, but I adore driving my red tractor to pull a trailer and loader while he stacks the square bales.


I delight in marking rows for my hubby when he is putting out fertilizer. I rather fancy opening the gates when we are moving cows. I definitely relish being another set of eyes to be sure no calves get left behind when mammas move to a new pasture.


I cherish that I am strong enough to fill the mineral feeder and that I can actually lift that bucket without help. During winter months, I am nuts about adding creep pellets to the feeder for our sweet calves while my hubby puts out round bales for their mammas.
