Lambs! The cutest part of Spring!

Just as the spring like weather had teased us with ideas of green grass and short sleeves, cold and bitter winds hustled in to remind us what February was all about. Obviously it was a perfect time to go visit the farm and romp around outside!  Admittedly, we wussed out as nothing we packed was enough to withstand the biting wind.  Not my best showing, but we hung out long enough to say Hi! the to the animals, and (human) friends!

IMG_7160I swear I didn’t put her in there, but she got in the hay bucket so quickly I couldn’t capture it with my camera!

I eventually had to encourage her out so I could close the doors!

For what ever reason in the second group of what is currently the “juveniles” there are two chickens that are just so little compared to the rest. Developmentally they have feathered out similarly and run around eating just like their buddies. They are starting to stand out quite a bit from the rest of the group, hopefully the pictures does the size difference justice.
