The cowboys were delighted when a young woman chose to work on the farm as her volunteer project at Urukundo. Abby came prepared with a pair of knee high black boots. Not exactly the latest fashion design but served the purpose.
Abby learned to walk down steep uneven steps keeping her balance. Those steps are a bit much for me but I tackle them at least once a week on the arm of one of the boys.
Abby gathered eggs.
Milked a cow.
And earned the respect of all the farm staff.
She did not come a farmer, but she is leaving with a new respect for the farm and the hard work involved in caring for animals that are so important to our well being.
