Running around the yard with spindly legged calves and wobbly colts. A large hen had a special corner in the blacksmith shop, where she set on her eggs. You w atched for weeks until finally a little head appeared from under all of those feathers. Soon there was a docn or more little chicks follow ing her around the yard. A doc rabbit began to pull out her fur and you knew that soon there would be another batch added to the farm family. A large sow that had a litter of piglets, twice a year. Those pink little things were always fighting for a nipple. It seemed that always there would be one, smaller that the others, a runt. Mama took care of that one. She would wTap it in a cloth and put it near the kitchen stove, then would feed it milk with an eye dropper. She would get it several times a day, to feed it. Sometimes she was successful and the little pig got strong enough to fight for its rights. King over all of that barnyard was a mean old rooster. Even the horses were leery of him. If they sniffed at him he would flap his wings at them, they would snort and shy away from him. I was afraid of him too and he knew it. He tolerated me if I w as bringing out feed for them, but he w atched me and I watched him. Sometimes when I got too near to his flock he would spread his wings, flash those long spurs and take out after me. I would go running to the house, screaming for Mama. She often came out with a broom to chase him back into the barnyard. If she didn't, he stood out there waiting, just daring me to come out. He ruled that barnyard with an iron hand, but as with all big bullies, he made a terrible mistake. A fatal mistake! He attacked Papa who had a quick temper too! It only took a twist of the wrist and we had rooster stew. Mama said that it look two days of boiling to make him tender. So that old rooster had the last laugh after all. After that the barnyard settled into a dull farm routine. It was never the same again! 1 missed that old rooster!
