Rapata's Farm

One day I went to have a walk round Rapata's farm. I saw our horse there. I went to watch the pigs. I went to have a look at the milking shed. The animals on the farm were pigs, dogs, cows, cats and horses.

He has three children. One milks the cows, the rest go to school.

When Rapata has finished milking in the morning, he goes home to breakfast. At three o'clock in the afternoon, Rapata milks again. When he has finished, he goes home.
