down on the farm

Holly and I had a great time at the farm despite the weather, which started off as above, but quickly changed to being freezing cold and showery. Holly made friends with a sheep that kept following her along the fence to be stroked, which she loved, I think that was her favourite part of the day. They also have lots of adventure playground type things, this being the best, it is like a very big bouncy pillow, and I wish adults were allowed on! We couldn't go home without spending a lot of time stroking every single rabbit available, you can get in their pens with them, and Holly went in to every one. I did manage to squeeze in some sewing when we got home, I'm starting to panic slightly about the craft fair I am doing in a couple of weeks now! : )

There's nothing like a farm adventure. My kids love going to their Granny & Pa's farm and doing all the "animal" things. Great stuff.

That sounds like you had a great time! Those little sheep are so precious, and I'd be snuggling all those bunnies too if I were Holly. How fun!

Stroking rabbits is very cathartic. We are that way on purpose, it gets us adopted into more homes. We hate the stainless steel cages of shelters. We hate death row. And we cannot survive "in the wild" because the hawks and dogs eat us up. Oakland Animal Shelter, where I was for a while, had Rabbit Whisperers on weekends that would take us outside to the patio on weekends and we could see each other. But Monday through Friday, stainless steel.
