Good Friday Fun


We are so lucky up here to have good friends who also run their own crofts. Not a huge farm, just an intimate small holding.
For us it means that we can have the opportunity to get closer to the animals, some of them being quite domesticated.20130401-103812.jpgThis pair of lambs is no exception.

20130401-103819.jpgJ is always a bit more nervous than B, but I think that is to do with their ages. b used to be more nervous when she was his age.
In fairness though, he did pet these sheep I just didn’t manage to catch him on camera.

B and J were delighted when the hens came right up to take the feed from the jug.

Home afterwards and I have a pile of laundry to deal with, what joy.
J thought it was a great game!
