Baby Animals

Our first visit to the farm. J had been asking to see farm animals for a while. Slowly one by one we are checking off our to do list. Still on the list go see zoo animals.

Nothing like a big honking pig to make you want to eat that glazed ham in your freezer.
I thought these were the cutest little baby goats I ever did see.
Until someone said they were sheep not goats, sheep pupils are vertical while goats are horizontal according to the someone. Which is what freaks me out about goats their horizontal pupils. I tried to look it up, but only half heartedly, instead I found this, "The easiest way to tell the difference between a sheep and goat is to look at their tails. A goat's tail goes up (unless it is sick, frightened, or in distress). Sheep tails hang down and are often docked (shortened) for health and sanitary reasons." Well apparently they are sheep.
J loves the chickens, just like his dad.
Baby Human, actually got an appearance on our outings for a photograph
Let's not forget the tractors.
