Curious Cloverbuds – Barnyard Field Trip

For the field trip portion of our Farm Animal unit with Cloverbuds, we took a trip to a local barnyard.   It was an amazing day for it – beautiful blue skies, not too hot, nice breezes – and the kids had a ton of fun.
Despite the place being literally around the corner from my house, this was the first time I had been there with the kids.

Each kid was given a bucket of carrot slices to feed the animals, which included goats, sheeps, pigs, rabbits, chickens, peacocks, what I think was Scotch Highland Cattle, and alpacas (which weren’t interested in the carrots)….


there was an overhead walk-way for the goats and sheep to move between pens….

and water pumps with chutes perfect for racing rubber duckies (and making mud).

We ended up spending over 3 hours there playing  with all the fun stuff, enjoying the fresh air, and Georgie didn’t complain at all (well, almost not at all).
