Willa's Kindergarten class had a field trip to Spingdale Farm last week and I happily accompanied them. What could be more perfect; 72 degrees, sunny, and farm animals as far as the eyes could see and smell. Well, maybe not that far but animals were seen and touched a plenty!
We also got to watch an automated milking machine at work. It was remarkable to say the least. As was the automated manure sweeper. I wonder if they make such a thing for dog pooh in back yards...
This goat took a liking to Willa and nuzzled her for a while.
The kids all got to listen to the heartbeat of one very patient rabbit. Then they all got to pet a kid, a chick, a ferret, and a duckling.
There was even a little time left to play in the petting area.
