Hannah Simpson is a teenage girl who lives in New Zealand and the world of creativity she’s a 10. Hannah isn’t worried about Justin Bieber or the Kardashians, all Hannah wanted was a horse. After all, she did live on a farm she should probably have a horse.
It turns out she couldn’t have a horse. Most teenagers would probably go sulk, stomp their feet, cry about how unfair life is, if you’ve had teenagers you know the drill. Hannah is an exceptional teenager she didn’t do any of those things.
“Can have a horse? No? Okay, I want a cow… Preferably one that can jump… wtf? A horse may have been out of reach for this young girl, but her parents are farmers and guess what, they raise cattle. Hannah got her cow. But that’s not all…
That’s right, she taught her cow to jump. And quite a jumper Lilac is. Fortunately for lilac, she’s not a dairy cow. I really have a problem seeing Lilac manage that jump over that log with an udder full of milk.
Hannah said, “I have always loved jumping, I always wanted to do show jumping on a horse.
“And Leila was always jumping out of the cow shed when she was young so I think she likes it, too. We started her off with stepping over logs and it just got bigger and bigger.”
Hannah keeps a record of her adventures with Lilac on her Instagram along with some other pictures of farm life and more typical critters like dogs, goats, and sheep.
Hannah has a horse now, and she always wanted to do show jumping on horseback. We don’t know if she and her horse are doing that, but I do know that if I was Hannah’s dad I would start up a show for competitive cow jumping. It should be an Olympic sport. Pretty much everything else is.
For Hannah and Lilac there’s never a dull moment on the farm.
