(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?

A: Baa!

Short pause while we walk on. A points to a sheep.

A: Doggie!

Mummy: <sigh>
