I have no idea whether Braden (my great-nephew) will be FFA material. He's only 11 months old, so we'll give him a little time to decide. But, the old Fisher Price Family Farm got a workout during Braden's visit to his great-grandparents' house, just like it did when the first generation of grandkids came to call.
He appears to be pondering the high cost of farm equipment and how that will translate to his bottom line. It's serious business.
Braden really got into his work. A good FFA member wants to make sure his cows and horses stay in the barn and don't escape before a guy can shut the barn door.
Braden also had his first outing to a county fair. A guy needs to check out the different species to see what he might want to add at his own barnyard. He and Aunt Abby explored the sheep barn at the Pratt County Fair.
It's always good to get advice from a veteran farmer.
