Mares Eat Oats and Does Eat Oats (and so do cattle)!
Mares eat oats
And does eat oats
And little lambs eat ivy
A kid'll eat ivy, too,
When sung quickly, it ends up sounding more like this:
Other songs in my dad's car repertoire included "Tumbling Tumbleweeds" and "I'm An Old Cowhand from the Rio Grande."
But when we checked a field, it was that "Mares eat oats ..." song that I couldn't get out of my head. We're sure hoping that cattle eat oats, too, ... not just mares and does!
Randy planted oats in an old alfalfa field.
