This is the Mud
This is the cow who was chewing her cud, as she went for a drink and got stuck in the mud...
There is a muck and mayhem when a cow gets stuck in the mud by the dam, but when the rescuers get stuck, who will rescue the rescuers?
A rollicking, rhyming, cumulative story based on 'This is the house that Jack built'.
A girl passing on her horse gets her dad passing in his Ute to help unstick the cow. The Ute gets bogged, the neighbour's tractor and plough get bogged
who will rescue them all now?! Great rhythm and rhyme in a funny story of mayhem, all caused by the placidly chewing cow!
