At long last we have had some sun. It was a glorious day yesterday and I took Izzy, our three year old, out for a walk. We ended up strolling past the most exotic of farms and I just had to share some of the pictures I took.
The funny thing is that Izzy was quite reluctant to go for a stroll at first. Soon after we got out of the car, she came face to face with some pygmy goats. It may not be clear what she is doing in the picture, but she was attempting to feed them. Please do not ask what the goat with the horns did to its companion seconds after I took this image. It certainly left Izzy looking a bit shocked.
Moving swiftly on, we then stumbled across some llamas, or “camels” as a slightly confused Izzy referred to them. I remember a time when llamas were a rarity on British farms. These days they seem to be everywhere and this particular herd had all been shorn. I assume this was for the fleece, what with the weather having been a bit meh until now.
Finally we came across some sheep. Izzy was particularly keen on these animals, I think because of the presence of the lambs.
Shortly afterwards, it was time to get in the car and head off to collect older sister from school. I was glad to have got out into the sun with Izzy for a bit and she certainly enjoyed herself, despite her initial misgivings!
