Everything I Need to Know About Life, I Learned from My Animals

  • It’s ok to get dirty.
  • The grass isn’t always greener on the other side of the fence – in fact, some fences we shouldn’t even get near, let alone touch.
  • Don’t be the last one to the feed trough.
  • There will be death, it will be sad.
  • There will be new life, it will be joyful.
  • We all need a pat on the back (and maybe even a kick in the rear) every now and then.
  • Listening is more important than voicing an opinion.
  • Never doubt or underestimate a mother’s instinct.
  • If dogs and cats can get along, so can we.
  • Stick with your flock.
  • A fresh grooming makes all the difference.
  • Playing catch is the best way to spend a summer’s afternoon.
  • Take a walk outside every day, no matter the weather.
  • The best thing to drink is cool, clean water.
  • Like a chicken, sometimes we just have to sit on it for a while.
  • Mid-day naps in the sun are good for the soul.
  • If someone is depending on you, show up and be prepared.
  • We will not melt in the rain.
  • Sometimes we just need a new pair of shoes.

Logan is a homeschooled high schooler, vice-president of the Monroe County Fair Junior Livestock Association, avid sheep showman, and barrel racer. When she has free time from school, she can often be found riding horses, helping with all the animals on their farm, or playing with her two sisters and little brother. The first year of selling her lambs at the fair auction, upon returning home to an empty pasture, her family decided to try their hand at raising their own 4-H lambs. Birthing and raising these lambs have provided many valuable life lessons. Next to God, Logan’s great love is riding her horse. She hopes to work hard and pursue her dream of becoming a World Champion Barrel Racer.
