I was not the target audience for this book, finding much of it ... relentless in its focus on the details of animal husbandry. There were a few funny bits, but I spent much of the time listening debating with myself whether the print book might have been a better option, for easier skimming: Lucy Ricardo meets James Herriot this is not!

The author-narration works well enough, although I never quite got used to her strong accent, and she did pronounce a couple of words in ways that set my teeth on edge ("coyote" for example).
