Farm Animals I Don't Have......
On Thursday my Dad and I were the official babysitters for my niece and nephew. So I thought well, lets go down to Amish Country. I needed grain and wanted to pick up some misc. food stuff and then we could take the kids for ice cream. I remembered that Hershberger's had a new barn and a petting area for farm animals, not that I don't have farm animals, but I knew the kids would have fun............
..............and yep, they sure had fun!!! We were all quite impressed by this big guy!!!!
Big Ben was quite a hit at 2850 lbs and standing 19.3 hands!!!! Bobby was amazed at how big his feet were! We all agreed that Ben would not fit in any of my barns!
And I don't have any donkeys though the kids thought I should get one........NO!!!
But I would really love to have one of this little Jerseys!! When I win the lottery and move to Vermont, I am going to have a little herd of miniature Jersey cows!!
I do have some of these sheepies but these guys were too cute to resist a picture of;)
Now I do have some goats but my goats do not climb to the roof of the barn!!! Yep, there are goats on the roof! There is a set of steps that leads right to the roof and the goats just seem to love being up there on the metal roof! That pulley strap to the right in the picture goes to the roof. People can buy a cone filled with grain and there is a slot to put it in and then you crank the pulley and send it right up to the goats.......too funny!
The kids had a great time and my Dad and I needed a nap by the end of the trip!! (that guy in the pic is NOT my Dad btw LOL).
Now about those miniature Jersey cows.................
