Hi , I will try to post a new chapter every few days on one of my Cowboy books. You are welcome to print out the stories for people that have children, or send them to the blog to find out what happens next in: Cowboys Adventures.
Cowboy goes to the Fair
Trouble Misses The Fair
“Cock a doodle do, wake up everyone. it’s a beautiful day.” Before Cowboy could
crow the second time he saw Farmer Jack coming out of the barn carrying a wire cage.
“Hey Grandpa, what’s that cage for? Is someone going some where?” Ask Cowboy
“ I don’t know” replied the senior rooster, “but I bet we will find out soon”. About that time Trouble stuck his head out the hen house door. “What’s Jack doing with that cage” he thought, “that’s the cage I was in when I came to the farm.” Trouble became
worried, “maybe I’ve been too bad, maybe I’m about to become chicken noodle soup.” The cocky rooster began to shake with fear, “I have to do something, but what? I know, I can become sick, no human will eat a sick chicken.” With that thought Trouble fell to the ground, rolled over on his side, and began kicking his feet. When Farmer Jack saw the big red rooster flip flopping on the ground he dropped his cage and ran as fast as he could to see what was wrong. “Trouble, are you all right?” ,Jack asked with a caring voice.
Trouble just lifted his head, and made a little cough, spewing out the last bit of grain he had in his mouth. “I’m sorry your sick big boy. I had great plans on taking you to the fair, you’re the biggest rooster I have ever seen and I wanted to enter you into a contest.”
Trouble really felt sick now. “If I just didn’t think I knew everything I would be going to the fair. I know I would win first place in any contest I was in.” Trouble pouted. Farmer Jack was disappointed that Trouble couldn’t go to the fair, this was his first time to have an animal of his own to enter, and he knew because of Trouble’s size he had a good chance of winning the blue ribbon.
Cowboy could see that Jack wasn’t very happy. “Cock a doodle do”, Cowboy crowed, “take me to the fair Farmer Jack.” When Jack heard Cowboy he remembered that
the fair also had a contest for the smallest rooster. “I know, I will take Cowboy,” Jack said out loud. When Cowboy heard Jack’s words he began running around the yard
crowing with all his might, “ I’m going to the fair, I’m going to the fair.” All of a sudden Cowboy stopped in his tracks, looked up at his grandfather and asked, “What is a fair?”
Grandfather just laughed, “You’ll see when you get there.”
