A life-size, fiberglass Holstein cow kids can milk! Of course it's water that re-circulates through the bucket and it's a clever way to teach kids how to milk a cow.
Dress Like a Cowboy
Chaps, hats and boots. Dress like a real cowboy!

Steer horns on a bale of straw and a saddle set on a barrel with a rope. Talk about fun! Even the adults love this station!

"Y’all!!! If you have not been to this Gem right outside of town, then you need to make plans to go now! The girls had a great time today and they even have a restaurant there to eat on the deck and the food is amazing!! We spent about 5 hours today and I was forcing the kids to leave! We ate lunch on the patio at Dianne’s ranch diner and enjoyed the Great American Lone Star Ranch Fall festival before and after lunch! Great American Lone Star Ranch And Dianne's Ranch Diner."
