Hello,

A RANCHER’S TWELVE DAYS OF CHRISTMAS!
Okay, okay, everyone sing along now… On the first day of Christmas… come on now, sing. On the first day of Christmas, a rancher gave his wife (now we’re singing) an axe to chop the ice. (Keep it up now.)
On the second day of Christmas a rancher gave his wife two orphan puppies and an axe to chop the ice.
On the third day of Christmas (still singing), a rancher gave his wife three pair of long underwear, two orphan puppies, and an axe to chop the ice.
On the fourth day of Christmas, a rancher gave his wife four sacks of horse feed, three pair of underwear, two orphan puppies, and an axe to chop the ice. (This is getting long.)
On the fifth day of Christmas, a rancher gave his wife (higher now) five quarts of fuel conditioner (pause), four sacks of horse feed, three pair of underwear, two orphan puppies, and an axe to chop the ice (that was cool).
On the sixth day of Christmas, a rancher gave his wife one Holstein cow (cause she was cheap at the cow sale and he didn’t want six milk cows), five quarts of fuel conditioner, four sacks of horse feed, three pair of underwear, two orphan puppies, and an axe to chop the ice.
On the seventh day of Christmas, a rancher gave his wife seven bottles of Jack, one Holstein cow, five quarts of conditioner, four sacks of feed, three pair of underwear, two puppies and an axe.
On the eighth day of Christmas, a rancher gave his wife eight pair of tire chains, seven Jacks, one cow, five quarts of Howes, four feed sacks, three underwear, two pups, and an axe.
On the ninth day of Christmas, a rancher gave his wife nine bred heifers (to calf in February), eight chains, seven bottles, one cow, five quarts, four sacks, three long underwear, two pups, and an axe.
On the tenth day of Christmas, a rancher gave his wife 10 tons of cow cake, nine bred heifers, eight tire chains, seven bottles, one cow, five quarts Howes, four sacks, three underwear, two pups, and an axe.
On the eleventh day of Christmas, a rancher gave his wife 11 hours off (to bake bread and cook a goose), 10 tons of cow cake, nine heifers, eight chains, seven bottles of Jack, one Holstein, five quarts, four sacks, three underwear, two pups, and an axe.
On the twelfth day of Christmas, a rancher gave his wife, a twelve-foot calving pen, (everyone now) 11 hours off, 10 ton of cow cake, nine bred heifers, eight pair of tire chains, seven bottles of Jack, one Holstein cow, five quarts of fuel conditioner, four sacks of horse feed, three pair of long underwear, two orphan puppies, and an axe to chop the ice!

Merry Christmas,
Dean
