Country Kid Playpen

You know you're a country mama when you plunk your two-year-old in a round bale feeder to keep her safe while you're working cows.

Ain't that the truth? One of the first things we taught ours was "Climb the fence!" lol.
Love your blog and your pics!

goes to show she must have a gentle disposition. Mine would either climb it, hang upside down off it try to do the balance beam walk on the tops of the rungs. It does look safer than the hay loft though. Just might have to try it ;)

Yep, we've used the same thing here. We've used lambing jugs in the lambing barn but I'm afraid that may not work this year...she helps move the sheep with the rest of us and actually tries to wrestle the lambs when we're working them. She's also used to the 4-H/Show sheep, cattle & horses....no fear in that girl...YIKES!

LOL! That will only work for so long. Mine thought they were playground equipment when they first saw them. I'm certain that if I had stuck the oldest or youngest in one when they were that age, they would have climbed right out and then all over it. They were both climbers and daredevils from a young age. The middle two would have been only slightly more hesitant.

Hey my kids have a playpen just like that! So funny! But I would have to agree with the others, your daughter must be very obedient, and patient(probably spelled that wrong) because mine won't ever stay put, they keep climbing out, but hey there are always the hay bales to climb and the fences to turn flips on. Who needs high priced jungle gyms when you live in the country! Brandie

This suburban mom could've used one of those several years ago. Maybe I could chain my teens to it?

Ha ha!

HA! Excellent idea! Sure wish we fed round bales now... They'd rot in our weather. :D
