Chores: Elijah of Buxton

Dear viewers,

I read that when Elijah does his chores in the barn he does it in a ordinary fashion. He does first with the job he is not so pleased with then he does the jobs he enjoys doing. The first thing that he does is he cleans the stalls, shoveling manure and taking it to the fertilizer pile, and watering the animals. The second part of his chores, the relaxing part he brushes the animals and tends their hoofs. Elijah's favorite  part of the jobs is making the animals comfortable and keeping horse flies off of them. He uses the horse flies to go fishing with them. I think that book is a great and interesting book. I like how the author includes lots of details to get to know Elijah better and what he likes.

This is a close up picture of a horse fly.
