No Matter Where You Go...
There You Are
Make the Best of It

So my friend decided to have a Lamb-A-Polooza this year. It is an open house held on her small farm. She has close to 30 Sheep, 1 Chicken and 9 adopted chicks, around 7 Guinea Hens, 1 Ram, 1 Llama at least 2 Geese and several other critters that somehow didn't make it to my inventory of livestock! She invited volunteers from the Circle of Life Hospice organization (where I volunteer) and a bunch of friends. We chatted and snacked but most of all we enjoyed the animals

Actually, it looks like she did a lot of animal enjoying too! If that little lamb doesn't look happy I don't know what does!
She got a reward for being so well-behaved

Here is momma chicken who was brooding on two non-fertile eggs for 3 weeks and then finally a neighbor decided that she needed to offer some chicks for adoption so that Momma chicken could play the role even if the eggs she sat on were not productive!  She seems to be a fine Mommy!
What is a party without chooch the Llama?  He just walks around and makes sure nobody manhandles the lamb-ies.  They all felt so protected.

Sheep, lamb-ies or Llamas, they all come when you have food in your hand.
And a good time was had by all!
