A couple of months back we noticed a sign appear at the side of the main road in to our town for a kids mini farm. We often said we should stop and have a look but either the weather was bad, we were rushing somewhere or other or our baby was asleep. Today the weather was glorious, mild and sunny, so we decided to make a trip out to the farm. Right off the main road, with easy parking, is this small farm. There were lots of chickens, a few goats, a donkey (set back from the viewing area though so we couldn’t get close) and some sheep. Although it was very small, it was perfect for our 11 month old to spend a bit of time looking at the animals.She smiled and flapped her arms and legs in excitement when the sheep and goats came up to her (at the other side of a fence of course) and often tried to reach out to them. She also happily watched the chickens moving around in there enclosure. We were really lucky to time our visit to see a two day old lamb. You can find a photo of the lamb with my baby here as my living arrows photo for the week. This little farm was just the perfect size for the short attention span of an 11 month old. What’s more it is free and right on our main route in and out of town. I am sure we will be stopping many more times this spring/summer to watch our daughters interest in the farm animals develop as she grows.
