The Farm

In March Chloe started riding lessons.  She has loved every moment in the saddle and, although this has nothing to do with skill or horses, she looks absolutely precious up there.  She has her lesson and then the other girls get a very short turn on the pony.DSC_0091DSC_0105DSC_0123DSC_0106 DSC_0084 DSC_0060

But while Chloe has her lesson, her sisters and I roam the farm and play with the animals who live there.  Some run free around the farm and others stay penned.  This has been such a cool experience for them.  And for me!  I have actually learned a lot about Willow in this experience.  She is amazing with animals and they are drawn to her in an equally amazing way!  Willow, who loves to play with her sisters and have adventures, is more introverted than they are and a very tactile person.  So, when I saw her with these animals, it occurred to me that this might be a very beneficial avenue for her.  She relates to them in an incredible way!  A donkey actually called her over and stayed by her side the entire time she was by the fence.  Laelia and I were there too, but that donkey was completely enamored with Willow.  But that was nothing compared to the way this goat was drawn to her.  And when we return the same goat seeks her out and tries to snuggle with her.  So precious.  DSC_0116 DSC_0125 DSC_0131 DSC_0136 DSC_0138 DSC_0141

This is Willow’s favorite goat.  The goat saw her from far away and came over to her immediately.  She obviously remembered her too.  😉DSC_0154 DSC_0156 DSC_0158 DSC_0164

If you look closely you can see the poor chickie that Laelia is chasing.  She never caught him, but not for a lack of trying!  DSC_0168 DSC_0188 DSC_0191 DSC_0197 DSC_0201

So, we all want a farm.  Badly.  I think we’d absolutely love it!  And with soon to be 4 kiddos running around here, we’d have plenty of helping hands.
