Farm Friday * 13 November 2015

Welcome Back!

I hope you had fun on your field trip! The people who visited our farm while you were at the zoo had a great time, too!

I see Chuck all puffed up every morning!

This is what he looks like when he walks around.
What does he sound like?
What other sounds do you hear?

Thank you for your questions!

No, we don't have donkeys.
I think donkeys are adorable!
But they are also very, very loud.
Loud donkeys would be fine if we lived in the country,
but our farm is in town so we don't want loud animals.

Yes, we have cats. No, we don't have kittens.
This is Midnight, the barn cat.
She lives in the barn and has a job to do!
She loves having a treat of goat milk each time I milk the goats.

This is Cookie, she lives in the house.
She is very old! She is 17!
She also loves a treat of goat's milk every day.
Cookie won't drink milk right from the cow, or milk from the store.

No, we don't have rats.
We have cats and they take care of the rats and the mice.

How many birds do you count in the photo?

Look how the baby turkeys are growing!

Look how the chicks are growing!

This is Clover. She gets sick in the winter if she doesn't have a coat on.
Lots of animals grow thick winter coats, but Clover doesn't.
People don't grow winter coats, either!
Clover loves her winter coat because it keeps her nice and warm.
Are you as smart as Clover?
Do you wear your coat in the winter?

This is Misty, she grows a thick winter coat so she doesn't need to wear one like Clover does,
or like you and I do!

We planted a tree this week, but that night there was a big wind storm and it blew down.

I had to plant it again the next day, and tie it to the fence so it won't fall down again.
Do you see someone nibbling on the tree?

Thank you again for your questions, I hope you have a wonderful week!

Next week I'll tell you what kinds of food the animals eat.
