Ridiculously cute small animals…
Today we paid a visit to a lovely little children’s farm with my friend and her two boys. She’s been going there for years and so we were received like old friends by the owner Mabel, who opened the sanctuary twenty years ago and now runs it with her son.
The boys held baby chicks that were born this morning, four-week old rabbits, gerbils, guinea pigs and ducklings. it was great to see them being so gentle with each animal and listening attentively as Mabel told them all about them - it made a change from the usual rough and tumble.
Of course, now both fellas want a duck of their own - and a rabbit, and a chicken and a guinea pig and a goose….oh dear.
