An Afternoon With Sheep

On Wednesday, my hubs and I decided to get out of the house and over to Carriage Hill Farm Metropark for the afternoon.  It was a gorgeous, sunny day and we hadn't been over there in a few months to see the lambs. 


On our last visit to the farm, the sheep were being shorn, and were still in the barn.  It was lovely seeing them out on the pastures in the sunlight.  The Merino sheep are so wrinkly 
without all their wool.



Walking around the farm, we saw chickens, horses, mules, donkeys, cows, ducks, geese, honeybees, pigs, and piglets.  


The lambs have grown since we last saw them.  At times, they were close enough to the fence to pet them.  Just adorable!




It was difficult to get a good picture of the little black and white lamb.  This was was the best I could do.





We enjoyed walking around the farm, hiking around the ponds and woods, and seeing all the animals.  A great way to spend an afternoon.
