Abby now has a cow. Today Grandma Inez and Grandpa Sam had rounded up their cows and were branding the calves, giving medicine, changing ear tags and other cow related things. Yesterday they asked if Rueben could help. Gabe and I agreed it would be a nice break from the normal routine. This was the first time the kids and I went out where Grandma's cows graze on the reservation. Abby had a great time. Robert stood back, held his ears, and repeatedly said he wanted to go home. Josiah had fun until he got tired. Elisabeth stayed in the sling either sleeping or watching all that was happening. Grandma told Abby to pick out a cow she liked. We helped her pick a young one with a white question mark on its face. We named it Abby's favorite question - Why?
