Breakfast - Little Herder Story-2


On the fire in the middle of the hogan, my mother cooks food.
My mother makes fried bread and coffee, and she cooks mutton over the coals.


My father and I and mother, we sit on the floor together, and we eat the good food that my mother has cooked for us.

We have many things. My mother has many sheep and goats and her hogan and the things of the hogan and me.
