  The animal farm was not a glamorous place to work. The sheep got hoof and mouth disease and several died and had to be picked up, wheelbarrowed to vacant land and buried. The llamas were nasty and horny and put on daily perrformances for children to ask their parents what they were doing. The animal droppings had to be broomed up several times and day which meant pushing a broom over the entire animal farm area and getting extremely dusty and dirty. I was glad when school started again! Charles McManuis
