We Visited a Goat Farm

30th Apr 2018

J3 have been learning all about the farm. One of our favourite stories in this topic has been The Three Billy Goats Gruff. We thought it would be a good idea to visit a goat farm and see some goats for ourselves. We had a wonderful morning at Roy Colvin's goat farm. Roy and his wife Evelyn made us feel very welcome and enjoyed showing us all their animals. We saw some baby doves, a Belgium hare, their dog Yoda not to mention lots of goats and kids!! The hare's fur was lovely and soft and we loved stroking it. The goats were so friendly and loved interacting with us; it was great fun watching them climb and play with each other. Roy showed us how to milk a goat and some of us even had a go!! Roy and Evelyn have a beautiful garden and we loved exploring all the interesting places.

A great time was had by all. We now have first hand experience of what goat farming is all about after meeting three real life Billy Goats Gruff!!
