We decided we wanted to play out, we wanted to do something fun and I remembered that less than 20 minutes away is a charity/lottery funded urban farm. It is on the Meanwood Valley Trail so you can make a real day of it but we just wanted to visit the Farm today. At only £1 entry for adults and 50p for children it doesn’t break the bank!
We had a lovely day seeing the animals, my favourite animals EVER are sheep, growing up in Yorkshire I have seen a lot of them and they are cute. Sam liked them too but as he found out they are not as fluffy as they look , a bit greasy and rough to be exact! He was more taken with the donkey, he liked to stroke him and the donkey obliged, even though Sam had accidently ‘stroked’ his eye first!
After seeing the donkey and the sheep we looked at the alpacas, who were sporting the most amazing haircuts, they were considerably softer than the sheep. They are brilliant looking animals, tall with long necks and the biggest darkest eyes, beautiful. There were two of them and they stuck together like glue as the goats they were sharing a barn with were quite….how shall I put it… bossy! The poor things didnt get hardly any of the food we had bought at the farm because the goats would butt them out of the way and climb the fence – that’s right, CLIMB!
