Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:25

Narrator: Male

Tractor Trails Excerpt:

The yellow tractor smiled, knowing that they could already smell the sweet scent, and eagerly awaited some fresh hay.  As he rumbled past the different enclosures, the sheep, goats, and rabbits all perked up, excited by the sweet aroma of freshly cut hay.   The bunnies were especially fun to watch.  They hopped around excitedly and even stood up on their hind legs, begging for just a tiny pile.

Trenton finished one row and then carefully turned to start the next.  He was beginning to feel a little bored, and knew he needed to do something to help himself pay attention.  If he drifted off his path, he might miss some hay, and it’s always good to watch where you are going. Then the little yellow tractor heard something in the distance.  There was a soft melody drifting along on the wind.  Trenton smiled.  He knew what he would do to keep himself alert.  The little yellow tractor would make music!  His engine already rumbled away with a decent beat, and the mower whirred away in the background. Now the tractor just needed to add a bit of melody.
