Field Trip to Nut Farm Nubians

Take a walk with us up the hill!

Today was horn burning day for our two newest little kids.  So off on a field trip to visit Lynn McAdams at her farm in Trinity, NC - Nut Farm Nubians.  Lynn is a great friend and is one of the most amazing women I know.  She manages her farm - all alone - all 150 acres loaded with about that many goats, chickens, ducks, geese, turkeys, peacocks, parrots (and the sort), dogs and 1 little crow baby named Russell that she is feeding after it's mum thought it an ugly duckling and booted it out.
Recently Lynn had a birthday so of course a handmade card was in order!  I was rushed for time so it wasn't as layered as I would have liked it, but she liked it and that was all that counts.

Here are a few pics from today's field trip!

How many goats is too many?
Xio loves on a GREAT BIG donkey!

Who said Ca-who-a-who-a's and crows can't be friends!!

  2. It was fun to see live action! Love the goat photos.

  3. Wonderful photos of farm life and goats - Xio is very cute too! Great to see the short video, too.

  4. Just a big "aaaawwww!" all are adorable... The kids, the kiddo, the crow.

  5. Lovely birthday card. looks like a great day at the farm. In Bonneville we stayed at the county fairground. In the field behind us were goats and in the barn more goats. mad little devils. Even watched dog round up some sheep and bring them in, they all needed a trim. All very bucolic.
