Tiny Visitors

Yesterday was a special day on the farm.
We had a group of pre-school visitors who came for a tour.

There is just nothing cuter than children and animals.
I think I had as much fun watching them as they had visiting our critters.

They were quite enamored with Minerva, and wondered if she lives in the playhouse
when she is not "working" in the garden!


I am not sure who was happiest here...
Sammy, MaryAnn, or their little visitor!

A tender moment was shared between pig and dog.


Everywhere we walked, Sam and Oakley had someone holding on to them.  
These two boys were so tolerant and gentle!


Sam revelled in the attention!


After our visitors left, MaryAnn hopped in the pool for a swim.
I just love her smile!

She loves the water.


Ginger, on the other hand, prefers mud...
and digs through it with her snout until she finds the perfect place.


And then she flops down and rolls in the mud.



All of our animals have their own personalities
and their own special talents.
I thought I would share Henri's special talent.
Henri is an apricot colored Polish crested rooster who likes to do....


Owl impressions!


Pretty good, huh?
"Who-who looks like an owl?" he says.

Have a great weekend....we will be spending a lot of ours in the garden;
and will be back Monday to share with you.

I love your menagerie. Years ago I had "Eve" but she has since left. It was pretty funny because people would drive by and wave, thinking it was me in the yard. I've got to come up with another fine lady once I get my little chicks.
Blessings,

Awww, the little kids are so sweet. It is so important to teach all children how to be gentle to animals from a very early age. They are all adorable!

Have a wonderful, safe weekend, Bev! Meghan

Henri does look like an owl !! Sam and Oakley seemed to love the attention of the "little people"...so cute..I'm very glad to see that Edith has been found safe and sound..doing what comes naturally...

How fun!! I truly see Mary Ann smiling--who can blame her? Ginger gets her mud loving from her daddy--he loves nothing better and has been there many days this week :)
Hugs, Amy

Hi Bev
How true that is.. Nothing cuter thank children and animals. Your rooster is MAGNIFICENT! What a great post.
Thank you so much for your very kind words of encouragement. I really enjoyed making this coach..

I am so happy you enjoyed the coach and my bird. You made me blush with your most kind words.
