Our daughter, Charlie Elizabeth, and I spent the day riding the old John Deere cultivators. She's picking up on everything so quick. As I stopped at the end of a row to pick the cultivators up, she grabbed the lines and started screaming UP! UP! (I say step up to start my horses) All you dad's out there no what a proud moment this was for me. I'm not going to force horses or farming on her as I want her to make her own choices but I believe that the seed has been planted. I'd say you will all be seeing a whole lot more of this little girl in the future.

That's great to read, Chad . It's also great see that you have very trustworthy horses and can take your little daughter along for cultivating.

You're doing it right Chad. Keep her learning, keep her safe.

that is how you get children interested in what you are doing from 1-6 years old they learn all that your doing and why. By the time there any older it is A lot harder to interest them it can be done. I know that I was riding horses with my dad by the time that I was 4 we covered A lot of territory in a day looking at and looking for cattle that weren't where they were supposed to be. Taking care of 500 cow calf pr of ours 500-1000 yearlings some of ours and some take in summer cattle. the younger children didn't get that experience at that age and were the first to leave home and get jobs they never came back to the ranch.
