I love this Picture, He had the most interesting eyes ever. I approached him and asked if I could take a picture and look he stood still and looked right at my camera. These are the pictures of our little adventure at a local petting farm. It was not a planned visit we were driving by and my friend Jo spotted the little farm and decided to surprise us city kids with a little visit to this Pony and Animal Farm. So the 3 of us .. my nephews and myself we were excited at the thought of seeing some live Farm Animals. My friend proceeds to buy 2 cups of food to feed the animals. Only we encountered a little problem, remember I said "City Kids" lol.. we have not been around any livestock such as the ones we were about to encounter and we did a couple of mistakes. =D
Mistake #1 Jo handed the cups of food to my nephew and niece.
Mistake #2 we allow them to walk in first and I was not aware that these goats are aggressive and will tackle you down for some food. So as I am approaching the entrance I hear my nephew..Screaming "HELP!!! "they want to Eat ME!!!!"...as he is struggling to get away from the hungry goats, and on the other side I see my niece trying to run away from the goats only to get corner by 4 goats.
I am freaking out.. Like I said we are city kids and ignorant as to Farm Animals and their behavior. Joanne our resident New Hampshire Doll is also scared not because of the animals, but is trying to console my screaming and super terrified nephews who are convinced that the goats want to eat them. =D.. in reality the goats where aiming for the cups of food that that they were holding and to small children the goats are at eye level coming forward full speed ahead mouths all wide open and ready for some carrots and treats. Once she realized that the food was the cause of the problem she knocked the food from the kids hands and the goats ran to eat. Leaving my nephews free to escape and that is exactly what my Nephew did .. He jammed right out of the pen and was not interested in going back in. Can you say TRAUMA!!! I felt horrible and so did Joanne, there she was trying to show us some cute farm animals and now here we have my nephew terrified to even look at the goats and refusing to go back in.
Here is a Picture of My niece.. see her smile.. it is one filled with nerves.. she was on her way out also, but I managed to convince her to stop and take a picture and the goats left her alone.
An Alpaca, we thought he was a Llama
