Husbands are notoriously bad at picking Christmas gifts for their spouses. Dishwashers, cutlery, and socks are just a few of the gifts under the Christmas tree. Country singer Carrie Underwood recently got an early Christmas present from her husband, Mike Fisher. Cows. Plural.
The Cows Come Home For Christmas
Carrie Underwood already has one… or two of her Christmas gifts. The crooner’s NHL-alum husband, Mike Fisher, gave her what she really, really wanted: Two cows. While the couple has a farm in Nashville, the cows are more than just livestock. It seems Carrie Underwood loves cows and wanted some for pets.
So, Mike Fisher took himself down to the auction and bought her two of them. He shared the news last week on his Instagram Stories.
The two cows join the couple’s chickens. Country Now reports that the farm’s brood will keep expanding. Reportedly, the next animal will be donkeys. Carrie Underwood said donkeys are on the list “because they’re good to have as far as, like, coyotes go on the farm.” Additionally, she hopes to add more chickens to her roost.
Carrie Underwood’s 5-year-old Son Names the Cows
It seems Carrie Underwood isn’t the only family member who love cows. Her 5-year-old son Isaiah was given the honor of naming the cattle. He chose “Oreo” for the black-and-white one, and “Brownie” for the brown cow.
In September, the country singer’s new Christmas album came out. Not only did Isaiah get to name the cows, the youngster sang on The Gift album.
