Our eight year oldgranddaughter, Haley spent several days at the ranch with us last week. She loves the ranch, the animals, all of it. She lives only 110 miles away but it seems like 1000 some times! Her grandpa was out swathing when we got there and she called him on the cell phone as we got close to the field to let him know she had arrived. We met him at the end of a row and she climbed in with him. I don't know who was more tickled to see who, Haley or her Papa Doug! That night she went to bed and slept a few hours and got up with her grandpa to go bale. They came back in about 5:00 a.m. and we all slept in for a bit.
When Haley is at our place, she always has to spend time in the barn with the cats. We have several litters of kittens down there now and all except the little one in her arms are wilder than wild. I think the older barn cats look forward to her being her and all of the attention she gives them.
