A little farm

Just a little farm on a recent trip to local Castle Gardens. Enough to delight Little Bird who starting tunefully singing 'E-I-E-I-O' as soon as he spotted the field of sheep and longhorn cows. We crossed over a little bridge over a babbling fern lined brook into the paddocks.green fields of cows warning sign DO NOT feed the animals chewing goat mummy sheepThere were lambs trotting after their mother who looked tired of them trying to get milk. Oh for a minutes peace she baaad. 'Sheeps' exclaimed Little Bird.

Despite its long horns it is really a big softy and this one here reminds me of Ludo from The Labyrinth.Longhorns They have a cute goat tower here. have you see one before? We hadn't but I found some around the world whilst doing some research - some pictures here if you are especially interested. Goats like to climb and hence the tower with circular steps was devised, the original that many others have since been modelled on was in South Africa.

He does love his animals. Love Birds squabbling
I love this poster, very vintage looking and would love this for our house. Before the kicking and crying commenced *ahem* we enjoyed watching the Lovebirds cuddling up together. They are unbelievably cute although I do feel sad for birds in captivity. They seemed happy enough and well looked after. Australian parakeets vintage poster Love Birds cuddling up
We will definitely be back here in the summer to see how all the animals are and see how the lambs have grown.

What a beautiful place with such a great variety of animals too. I may need to speak with Farmer Nick regarding a goat tower. Thanks for linking up and sharing your fun with Country Kids.

We love visiting farms too. I can't help a little fantasy dreaming of an orchard full of sheep. The parakeets are so sweet bunched up together. #CountryKids

Thank you. In Photoshop, upload a video and then pick a little sequence to make an animated gif. x

My house used to have an orchard attached to it, I wish it still did. Such pretty places.

Happy Homebird said...

It does indeed. I'd never seen one before.

Aren't the goat towers cool, I want one in my garden ;)

Yes they are a bit temperamental. Me too, I'd have a garden full of chickens and sheep :)
