A visit to the farm

The woman who we worked sheep with a few weeks ago invited us out to see the babies on the farm this morning.

Logan got to bottle feed a lamb that was born Sunday. The momma had triplets so the smallest lamb is getting supplements.
Isn't she the cutest thing?
We saw the baby piggies. They really liked Logan and kept coming over for attention.
And we got to see a chick hatch while we were there. Here it is most of the way out of the shell.
The one we saw hatch is the one on the right that looks all wet still. This is just minutes after hatching. The other 3 hatched last night or early this morning.
Saying hi to the mule and donkey. They are so sweet.

This guy is beautiful, so I had to get a picture.

We had such a great time visiting today! Thanks for having us out Trebs!

Fun! Thanks for sharing the photos. Looks like you all had a great time, and yes, the little lambs are adorable - and the chicken is gorgeous!

What a fanntastic day!! My dream for you is not to have to leave your own place to visit other farms to experience farm life.

My wish for you is that you are living the farm life yourself.

And I just know it will be happening soon!

ps, the lamb is so ADORABLE!!!

What a great day you and Logan had. The face on that little girl lamb is amazing. And what is it about boys and pigs? My Aidan (16 and taller than me) and Luke (400+ lbs at this point) love to wrestle whenever we go to the Lighthouse farm sanctuary. Luke starts making happy sounds when he sees Aidan coming!
Has your husband ever gone with you out to this farm?

I got the socks! Thank you Christy :)

Deanne said...

How beautiful to see all the new life on the farm! You guys are going to be great keepers of the earth and animals on your own farm! Others will be visiting and learning from YOU someday soon. ;)

Christy said...

Twinville - Thank you for that dream for us! We are keeping the faith that it will happen soon.

Farmgirl - No, my husband has never been out to the farm with us. He has no interest in farming or animals, so this is something that Logan and I will be doing. My husband will be willing to help if I ask him, like with moving things or lifting things, but he probably won't help with the animals. He'll mostly be helping by bringing home money from his job!

Deanne - Thank you! I was thinking about that yesterday, that someday someone who is dreaming of having a farm may be coming to my farm to learn and get their fix.

Erikka - Great! I hope they fit.

How excititng for you and Logan. The lamb is so adorable! I sure hope you get your farm soon.

Danielle said...

Oh my, that lamb is sooo cute! What a great day you guys must have had.

Those are fine looking piggies, too--tams? Our sow just had her babies yesterday. Very exciting!

Christy said...

Danielle - I'm pretty sure they are tams. How exciting that you had piglets! How many? Post pictures. We'll have to arrange a trip out to see you guys soon, now that the weather is warming up. You can put me to work.

Logan is one very lucky guy. He's going to have right-minded farming in the very marrow of his bones by the time he grows up!

What a fun day! I would love to have someone like you come out to the farm and help - you and your son appreciate it so much!

Cute, cute lamb.

Sarah - We'd love to come help out! We enjoy it so much.
