Spring day at the farm

Last Saturday, our family took a little outing to nearby Tilly Foster Farm. When we got there, we were surprised to see that it was "Draft Horse Day." We just intended to have a quiet walk on a spring day, but we got to see all kinds of unusual animals. Here are a few of my favorite shots (By the way, these were all taken by my daughter, Sarah, a budding photograper!).

Look at those hooves! Isn't he gorgeous?

These must've been some breed of miniature oxen. They were only about 3 feet tall!

I'm a sucker for this palomino coloring.

Here's a bold rooster.

Cassie is making friends with this yearling foal named Elmo!

This was an interesting interactive fiber art outdoor sculpture called "tree weaving." Someone wrapped twine around the trunks of two trees about 10 feet apart. Passersby were welcome to choose colorful strips of fabric from boxes nearby and weave them in and out of the twine. Neat!

Looks lovely and definitely a place I'll visit since it looks like you can bring your dog!
