Holy Myrrhbearers Steers

Mother Katherine is very proud of her steers and showed us how she uses a yolk to work them around the farm.  Father Aaron and Mia gave the boys apples picked from the ground.  It was hilarious watching them navigate the long, curly tongue of the steer who was trying to pluck the apple from the hesitant human.  I tried to show them how it's done with an open hand supporting the apple and pushing it up into the steers mouth. That was a bit much for my Jersey  Tomatoes to do, getting that close and coming away rather slimy.
