Today, I was waiting with three other people for a business meeting.
Two of the people, who had not met each other before, who are in different not-farming lines of work, got into a discussion of their sheep (which both own, as pets) and chickens (which both own). And how old the respective animals were, and what sexes and kinds they were, and whether the male was a wether or ram. Some of these sheep and chickens are very old, so you know.
Also discussed: The one rooster that the one guy has. "We don't know anything about him, his lineage or anything. We found him. He wandered out of the town forest."
I did not ever have this conversation before a business meeting in Washington.
