So I took a picture of him for Lisa at Laughing Orca because I knew she would like him.
We watched for a while and then moved on to the sheep dog demo. To tell you the truth it was a lot of yelling at the dogs to "Lie down.....lie down....I SAID LIE DOWN!"
So I moved on to the petting area to pet a few animals but you really couldn't pet any so I took pictures........weather permitting. The bunny was matted and dirty, but I did get a good picture.
The rooster was just about plucked clean...poor boy, and the goats and sheep were so far out in the field there was no petting them.
I did get a picture of the donkey for Danni.
I was able to buy some produce there and some fabulous cookies and then we moved on to the next farm.
Hallelujah! Now this is what I'm talking about. Totally different atmosphere! The sun even came out. It was lively and friendly at the Gentle Giant Meadows Ranch. We got to mingle with the Shire horses. These horses were huge and like the name of the farm states...Gentle Giants.
We saw a lot of people we knew.
The goatfarmer was there doing a milking demo, that I happen to miss so there will be no pictures of that.
But I did get a picture of a goat.
I did get pictures of the bag pipe players. Is that what they are called?
Some toe tapping.....
And of some sheep.....
and of course the gentle giants.
They had hay rides and the kids could feed the chickens and goats. You could also order your heritage Thanksgiving turkey if you were so inclined.
We could have stayed all day but my friend had the horseshoer coming at 2:00 so we headed for home.
When I got home, Hubby and Stormy had returned from pheasant hunting with 2 birds. And in the true spirit of Harvestfest, for Sunday dinner we had pheasant, corn on the cob and a salad. All locally grown and locally eaten.
