On the farm

This week a good friend of mine invited my boys and I to visit her farm. Like a lot of farms this year my friend was left with a lot of lambs that had to be bottle fed – rubbish weather, not enough grass, no grass = no milk produced by mummy sheep – and she thought my boys would enjoy the experience of feeding them! My boys always love the farm but this time it was extra special, they were so excited to help out.

PickleGryffin was the first to start the feeding. The ewes without milk and their babies are kept in the barnĀ separateĀ from the rest to save confusion at feeding time.


Bear really enjoyed it, luckily his ‘baby’ was one of the oldest and wasn’t too bothered about his manic giggling haha!


After the lambs Bear went to ‘help’ with the cows, lovely Welsh Blacks who I believe are all currently pregnant. I adore cow noses, they are so ridiculously cute! Gryffin was still helping with the lambs – lots of hungry little mouths!

After being helpful and a lovely dinner it was apparently time to run around the farm like a loon!

And this is how you catch hyperactive children and carry them around on the farm ha!



After lots of running around and general silliness, Bear felt ready to embrace spring!


My favourite photo of the day, we all had a fantastic time at the farm and the boys left having made friends and memories for life =)
