I spent my childhood in Stamford, Connecticut and knowledge of farm animals was limited to what I might see at the zoo. It is a lot different here in New Ipswich. I learned that rather quickly when I watched a goat eat my mugho pine, or had to call my neighbor about an errant cow. I visited Scott & Karen Hackett’s farm on Friday to see some new lambs. I was most intrigued by their llama who seemed as interested in me as I was with him.
