    The majority of your clothes come from Tractor Supply

    You sign your animals' names on the Christmas card

    Your neighbors call to see if the rooster's all right because he didn't crow that morning



    Let's add some more!:)

    Dirt is permanently embedded under your toenails.
    You have a "nice" vehicle for going places and a second rusty vehicle for hauling animals.
    Your kids pee outside, even at the park. (Don't ask...)
    Don't bother taking your shoes off inside, your socks will just get dirty.
    You know your frost free dates.

    You wake up at 1:30 am when the rooster DOESN'T start crowin'.

    Your "nice" vehicle has a bale of hay in the back. (And it smells GOOD!)

    You have goat pee on the carpet in your spare bedroom that you haven't had a chance to steam clean since the last baby bailed from the crib when it was too cold to leave them outside overnight and you know it is really stinky, but what could you do.

    You have open bags of feed in the kitchen 'cause the rats keep getting into the barn (what are those darn cats doing anyway? Not mousing!).

    You have chicks in brooders in three rooms out of six in the whole house.

    You tell your doctor you need an appointment "after milking time".

    Your "outside shoes" have animal excrement somewhere on them.

    You are excited if you find alfalfa hay for less than $10.00 a bail.

    There's straw in the back of your new Toyota Highlander.

    You get excited when you get coupons in the mail from any feed store.

    You see Hoegger's Supply new catalog, or any farm related catalog in the mail box.

    You make cornbread and put the goat's milk that didn't make cheese in it for the chickens. (and you don't get mad cause you goofed it up)

    Your grandson's bar mitzvah is in Dallas and you are dreading spending 3 days in the city in August.

    I could go on, but yep, I'm a Okie(transplanted) and proud of it.

    You wonder what that smell is - and realize the smell is your shirt where the chickens dropped their poo on you from the roosts and the goat kids romped on your back with their dirty feet.

    The dogs have their own bed room.

    There are random chicken eggs sprawled around the yard.

    You take ALL scraps/leftovers home from any dinner outing (be it a friends or restaurant) so the animals have a nice dinner too.

    You start furnishing your house with 2nd hand stuff from craigslist because you'd rather spend the money on a new animal.

    And, yes, your son whips it out anywhere at any time to pee because "that's what Dad does"

    Your 5 yr daughter sees the rooster and hen "sharing a moment" and she says "Mom! Fred's fertilizing some eggs!"

    You show a genetics video to a 7th grade science class and there is a section about AI in dairy cows

    The 7th graders then explain that the technology they use in said video is outdated and explain what they use on their dairy farm

    Your guest bedroom is a travel trailer on cinder blocks

    You take down a tree in your yard and 10 people show up to take wood home for their woodstoves

    Your husband wants a bumper sticker for his truck that says "Chicken Man"

    YOU are the embarrassing country cousin at family reunions

    Your family asks "What's for dinner?" and you reply "Dunno - who ticked you off the most today - the rooster or the steer?!?"

    And all they ask every time they see/talk to you is "What hatched or gave birth this time?"
