On the way to Stonehurst Farm Victorian Christmas weekend we dropped into the local garden centre to pick up an axe for Bruce's birthday on Tuesday (lucky man eh!) and have a reccy at their Christmas trees. All I can say is that this Father Christmas was prophetic, their prices were astronomical starting at £40!
This was a very welcome sight at the entrance to the farm.
As you can see there was a lot of mud, I could have done with these boots that I have just bought on ebay, the only things likely to fit me for a while.
This sheep was very eager to get at the food,
I was surprised to see these babies at this time of year.
In the petting shed we witnessed this demonstration of keenness to be petted,
There was however lots of petting going on, Beth could have stayed her for hours but we persuaded her to leave in order to look for food saying we would come back but we forgot. Will have to go again but maybe wait till it is warmer.
Beth got these very seasonal hair clips in a lucky dip for 50p, quite a bargain, it wasn't divided by gender and it did set me wondering what a boy of the same age would have made of them?
And who could be expected to resist a ride on this!
She actually hit a pack of cards but the cork 'bullets' were too light to knock them off.
And of course this is always fun.
And don't we all agree that this is the perfect way to finish off a freezing cold and clammy visit to a farm?
And if you haven't had more than enough there are more pictures here.
