Part of the fun is connecting with my roots, dairy farm families. Here's one great dairy cow story and I will say it again: You can't make these kind of stories up! Upon request, I sent a PRANCING DANCING LILY book to the President of the Wisconsin Ayrshire Club for an auction to benefit a youth group. (Lily, as all fans know, is an Ayrshire.) Who won, you ask? LILY went for $125 to...wait for it...Lily, who looks to be about 10. The bidding stopped when she started bidding. Her family owns Holsteins, but last spring she asked for an Ayrshire to show and her family got her one. So LILY went to Lily, an Ayrshire lover in a family of Holstein lovers. As I said, you can't make these stories up.
Lily's mom, Becky Charapata, writes me that they think PRANCING DANCING LILY's story is perfect for Lily. I think so too. Have fun with your beautiful Ayrshire, Lily.
