So first, I'll show you some of the great animals we got to see. Tomorrow I'll show you the pumpkins. =0)
Here are some rabbits that live in what the call "Bunny Town." The brown one was my favorite!
Here are some of the goats. These goats are very friendly (and often hungry). There are food dispensers near the gate so that people can go in to feed and pet the goats.
This one looks pretty comfy!
This pumpkin farm does school field trips for plant and animal sciences. Here they have a beehive on display so that kids (and adults) can watch the bees and see how they make honey.
The horses! I'm not sure what breed these are, but they're not full size horses, and they're not the miniature horses either. I should have paid more attention...Either way, they're beauties, aren't they?
The chicken coops can be seen in the background, but I didn't get any pictures of the chickens (camera battery was nearly dead). =(
Here's a lamb. So cute!
And here was one of the ultimate favorites...The llamas, because this year, there was a little baby llama!!! This totally made up for not seeing any baby goats. =)
When kids go to this farm for field trips, they learn about how to take care of these farm animals and what they can provide for us. They have a demonstration where kids can try to "milk a cow" with a fake set up that they've created, and the kids LOVE it! They also show how hay bales are made with small replicas. It's a really great place for learning as well as having a good time having fun.
With all these animals, you'd never guess we were visiting a Pumpkin Farm, would you?
