Nancy is just enjoying the unexpected autumn sunshine as she tosses a bit more feed to Henny Penny, the chicken. Nancy is carefully holding the eggs she gathered from Henny Penny in her pinafore . Nancy heard a sound from inside the barn, has she forgotten any of her chores? Nancy is one of five children; she has two brothers and two sisters. All of the children share daily chores, today is Nancy's 'Barn Day'.
Nancy hears a voice from inside the barn, who could it be? She steps inside, she sees only Daisy, the milk cow. There is that voice again!
"Well, the chicken looks fat and happy, what about me?" Nancy realizes that the voice is coming from Daisy the cow!
"You know the chicken is not the only animal to be fed here," Daisy advises Nancy. Nancy is too surprised to reply. Daisy decides to go elsewhere for her meal, the barn across the way must have something for a hungry cow to eat. Daisy makes her escape, galloping across the field toward the neighboring barn.
Nancy knows that she had better get Daisy back, and fast. Nancy sprints after the escaping cow with a big bunch of sweet smelling hay in her hand. Nancy catches up with Daisy, shows her the hay and says, "I am so sorry Daisy, you never spoke to me before, except in my head, I was startled,"
Daisy bows her head, her big brown eyes are looking at the sweet smelling hay in Nancy's hand, "Is that for the chicken?" Daisy asks.
Nancy smiles at Daisy, "Oh no, this is for you, you are my favorite cow, I pulled the best hay out and there is more waiting back at our barn. Will you join me for lunch?" Nancy asks politely, she is certain cows appreciate good manners.
"Well..." Daisy is slowly inching toward Nancy and the hay, "Would that meal be followed by a milking? I am rather full of milk just now,"
"Of course, I was just about to suggest that myself, you are such a clever cow, Daisy," says Nancy as she leads Daisy back to the family barn. Nancy is sure that cows enjoy praise as much as anyone else. As Daisy is eating her fresh hay, Nancy weaves a daisy chain and places it on Daisy's head. "A crown for the queen of barnyard cows!" Nancy announces before she begins to milk the lovely bovine. Both Nancy and Daisy are happy at the end of the day.
