Last weekend, after leaving the rabbit show, I went to Equinox Farm for the first annual "Hug a Sheep Day." The Shepherdess at the farm had an open house at this time last year, but the sheep, for the most part, were too scared of us to play. This year we discovered the secret...........bribes. She had some of the friendliest sheep penned next to the barn, and when the others saw they were getting something from the strangers, and liking it, their curiosity overcame their caution.
This is Graham Lamb. He seems to have an identity crisis. Not only does he think he's a pumpkin, but when he speaks, out comes something that is far more "mooooo" than "baaaaa."
sigh......it ain't easy being "The Great Pumpkin......"
oooh look, some nice hay.........wait! Do I smell...........cookies?!?
I think Sara knows that we participants from town enjoy coming to her farm as much to satisfy our unrequited "farmer genes" as for the knitting, spinning, food and schmoozing - although we had a lot of fun doing those things too!
Hank - ever vigilant guard dog - and Miss Ewenice
Sorry babies. Mommy said no more cookies, they will upset your tummy.
Hey Lady! I know you've got cookies on you! Hand 'em over!
Miss Ewenice - aaaah, it's been a great day....
