Valentine's Day calf helps Turkish woman start farm
"I thought I would lose the ring while working on the farm. A calf, on the other hand, was a window of opportunity," the 42-year-old woman told Anadolu Agency.
She now owns a farm of 30 cows which she calls 'love'.
Speaking of her wife's decision, Hüseyin Kayalı, 44, said: “I thought she would choose the diamond ring, I was wrong.”
“I thought women usually like jewelry. I thought she would’ve gone for the diamond ring but she surprised me. She went for the calf because she loved animals. She worked hard, now we run an animal farm,” he added.
Nuriye Kayalı keeps a photo of the calf she raised.
"That Valentine's Day present changed our life. If I had gone for the ring, it would not have brought me anything,” she said.
