Down on the Farm

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.

The Middle one is a Barbados Black Belly Sheep, one of 2 or 3 types of sheep which grow fur and wool,  they look more like goats and shed their winter wool coats for a summer short hair one in warm weater.
