Just to let you know, I've spoken with Hank and we're talking soon. My goal is to convince him to let me take care of some of his cows that he puts on the property we're staying on in exchange for a lot of meat - perhaps a cow.
I get to learn, he gets more pasture. Oh, and more meat for my omnivorous children.
Maybe you could buy a cow, I'll grow it and we'll split it like an Abrahamic covenant party? What do you say?
