A Day At The Farm

Once a year the local farm college opens its doors for a weekend. We’ve done the trip a few times and it’s always been wonderful.
Yesterday we went again!
We saw horses with traps…

The highlight, as always, were the pigs, and their tiny tiny babies…

Hard to get the little piglets to stand still for a photo! But they were, without doubt, gorgeous…

There was a lady spinning sheep’s wool (and selling her wares)…..

And there were dog trials – which the kids loved…

…and lots and lots of manure…!

There was more to see – cows, sheep dog trials, craft stalls, and a clown. But it was a boiling hot day, Ted was needing his sleep, and we were all felt it was time to go home – both Leon and Maya had had sleepovers and were feeling the consequences! 😉
But we had all enjoyed it!

  1. Wish i could have joined in! Although i would most probably been spending way too much time watching those teeny tiny little piglets, mesmerized at the spinning wheel and stuffing myself with waffles!

    Thank you for sharing your day!
