It's not that animals come first in my life - my husband and children came first - but on a farm you have to do things when they have to be done - dairy animals have to be milked at the right time or the yield will reduce - that will decrease your income and you won't be able to feed your family. Simples.
The ex never understood about that sort of prioritising - he wanted to do what he wanted to doand when he wanted to do it -
"Why can't you come skiiing?"
"Who's going to see to the sheep - they're all due to lamb around then.?"
"Won't they be ok on their own?"
"No!" and he was the one who'd arrived home and said he'd bought some sheep and they'd be arriving in a couple of days!
