Looking around a farm

It's Sunday, the day after the house-warming party. Andreas and Maria are taking Anna, Pedro, Michael and Josh to a farm outside Filton. When they arrive, the farmer's wife is just entering the hen house. They follow her.
Farmer's wife:
Hi, can I help you?
Hi, could we have a look around?
Farmer's wife:
Of course! Just a minute, I'm just feeding the hens and collecting their eggs. Then I can show you around.
While they are waiting, they look around and see horses running in the fields.
Do you have any baby horses?
Farmer's wife:
A baby horse is called a foal. But no, we don't have any foals yet. But we do have some lambs.
They walk across the farmyard. Two dogs are following them.
I love dogs! Do you also have any cats?
Farmer's wife:
Yes, we do. They are probably playing in the hay right now.
The group arrives at the sheep.
They are so cute! And look, there's a cat hiding behind the fence! How cute!
Farmer's wife:
Yes, that one is very shy. Do you want to go to the horses now? I think my husband is feeding them. Maybe you can help him.
They meet the farmer. He gives the kids some carrots so they can feed the horses.
You are doing a great job! Why don't you come back and try horseback riding some day!
They promise to come back soon.
