We have BUGS!
Sometimes I try to catch them.
Sometimes I try to eat them.
We have bugs of all sorts: crickets, grasshoppers, beetles, ants, and spiders.
- We have:
FLIES—flies I try to kill! I chase them, I pounce on them, I swat them—there are all sorts of flies: house flies, horse flies, deer flies, biting flies, blowflies, fat flies, skinny flies we got them.
They all buzz, bite, and get in your ears! ALL OF THEM!
You know what? They don’t get in my ears! Nope, but they do get in the equine’s ears and in the dogs’ ears. I don’t know why they don’t bother cats, but they don’t.
- Mosquitoes—monsters, each and every one of them!
- Gnats—Mom and Dad think these are the most obnoxious, annoying, creatures. They can even chase Mom and Dad on their four-wheelers. (Right along with the giant Horse Flies)
- Giant Horse Flies and slender little horse flies. These winged monsters eat anything walking around with warm blood in it. And they will chase you down to get the blood.
- Wasps—Mom is very allergic to these and Honey bees. Their harpoons have been known to knock Mom down and out. Until the Benadryl kicks in and she can get her get-up and go going again.
Well, I think we covered all our wildlife,
what a farm is,
how to live and
work on a farm…
I think the next and last thing I’m going to talk to you about is the life-blood of the farm.
So, see you soon!
