Day 7 : Barnyard

          Day 7's prompt reminded me of my summer vacations spent in a small village at my maternal grand-father's beautiful home. Since he had an aversion to pets and was hearing impaired, no pets were allowed in the home. Hence, our curious minds used to wander off to our neighbour's home where there was a cow-shed, and all sorts of animals used to reside very happily. The friendly neighbours didn't mind our poking noses nor our silly questions! We were ever ready to give a helping hand to them though from a safer distance lest the cow's tail will flutter and land on us! Thanks, Bubble Ink Writes for such a beautiful prompt.

          Though, I didn't have a proper barnyard book, we somehow made it up with reading The country mouse and the town mouse, The little red hen and Ken the calf, a small animal board book. Others read these many -
