    Australian Story




    Only a Farm Kid...



    When you're from the country, your perception is a little bit different.


    A Queensland farmer drove to a neighbours' farmhouse in his Holden ute, and knocked at the door.
    A boy, about 9, opened the door
    "Is your Dad or your mum home?" said the farmer.
    "No, they went to town."
    "How about your brother, Howard? Is he here?"
    "No, he went with Mum and Dad."
    The farmer stood there for a few minutes, shifting from one foot to the other,and mumbling to himself.
    "I know where all the tools are, if you want to borrow one, or I can give dad a message."
    "Well," said the farmer uncomfortably, "I really wanted to talk to your Dad. It's about your brother Howard getting my daughter Susie pregnant".
    The boy thought for a moment...

    "You would have to talk to Dad about that. I know he charges $500 for the bull and $50 for the pig, but I don't know how much he charges for Howard."

    Thank you really needed a chuckle about now. Take it from a farm born and raised girl, kids not raised on a farm miss out on alot!... It is a whole different world.
    My DD and her DH live on a race horse farm and our 5yr old DGD educated her kinder-garden class on what a teaser pony was. She asked her Daddy last year why they took the mares to the stallion barns. He told her " the momma horses went to see the daddy horses" she asked "why?" He told her "so they could talk." She proudly come home and told her Momma " I found out what goes on at the stallion barns." My DD said " You what?" DGD said "Yep, Daddy takes the Momma horses up to see the Daddy horses, I think she goes to tell him how the babies are doing, but I think there's more Daddy won't tell me. But I'll find out." Needless to say even though she wasn't allowed in the stallion barns, she doesn't go anymore, unless it's a have to situation!
