A trip to the farm

IMG_8663IMG_8648  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. IMG_8655IMG_8678IMG_8682 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.IMG_8649IMG_8666She 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. IMG_8651IMG_8634This 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.

      I’m sure we will. It will be great to visit when she is starting to make animal noises etc.

    The little lamb is so cute, and looks like a great day out. So nice now spring is here!

    Oh what a lovely discovery – she looks absolutely riveted and it seems like the perfect size for a little one!

    That looks like a lovely little farm. My youngest loves animals and now the warmer weather is here I’m looking forward to taking him to some of the farms around here.

    What a great little find. It looks as though she had a fabulous time meeting all the animals.
