You counted fifty-nine, and then I counted ten more.
When did you do all that counting?
Come down, please! I do not want you to fall.
Don't worry. I am a good climber.
Kate climbs onto Cocoa and they count the cows. Cocoa even remembers what number cow Kate was on when she had stopped counting.
Cowgirl Kate is trying to count the cows but Cocoa keeps distracting her. She decides to count them herself, but is too small to see the cows on the ground, and she's also too short to see from on top of the fence.
"But she was too short. She could not see all the cows. She climbed up onto the fence, but she still could not see all the cows."
She decides to climb up a tall tree to count, but Cocoa cries to for her to come down. He is worried she may fall, and he says he will help her count the cows if she comes down.
