(On the way to the Sculpture Park in the car)
A (nearly 2 years old) sees field of cows.
A: (pointing) Horsies!
T (nearly 5): No, A, those are cows.
At Sculpture Park. A spies herd of sheep.
A: (excitedly) Cows!
Mummy: No, A, those are sheep. What do sheep say?
Short pause while we walk on. A points to a sheep.
