A very quick post today as we have been into Bristol all day and are now back home a short time before popping out again (so will catch up with you all later)...
I thought you might like to see some photos from Adam's Farm yesterday...for my friends from abroad, Adam Henson is a farmer and presenter on a BBC TV programme that aims to bring the Countryside into our homes every week - Countryfile. His farm is a working farm, but also a rare breeds centre in the Cotswolds. In fact, the Centre, run by his Dad, was open (on a much smaller scale), when I was a child.
We try and get there on or around my birthday every year (it's just over an hour's drive for us). It coincides with lambing, so is a special time to visit.
|This young pig was enjoying a contented nap|
|These are pullets (hens before they come into lay for the firs time) These are between 12-16 weeks old. The Buff Orpington below is just like Penny when we got her|
|This is a close up of the kid in the photo below. They were having a lovely snooze under the lamp! There;s another close up of the one right in the middle, below|
|This little lamp is just a few days old|
|Here we are being given a lesson in lambing with the help of a one day old lamb- he couldn't hold her for long because Mum in the stall next to him wanted her back|
|This is a Cotswold Sheep, I just love their fleece|
|A little Gloucestershire Old Spot piglet with his mum|
|An Exmoor pony|
|and here I am feeding the goats|
Hope you enjoyed this quick trip around the farm, there was so much more obviously...must fly now, be back with craft tomorrow!
Love and Hugs,
