Spring has sprung!
It looks as if spring has arrived in Wales! We have been enjoying some really nice days this week. Although the sun is shining, the breeze is still quite cold. We are praying that this year's weather will be better than last year's. On Saturday, we went to visit a friend's farm. Even though we love animals, we don't often get to be so close to them. It really was an enjoyable day out. It smelled like Kentucky! : ) I would really like the chance to go and spend some more time at the farm. It is one thing to know what an animal looks like in a picture, but another thing to be able to see, touch and even smell, REAL animals. Our Breanna seems to think she wants to be a vet when she grows up, so a little contact with animals should show her what vet work is all about. It is not always pleasant and you can't always have happy endings. Karen has around 600 ewes who have produced around 800 lambs! When you add in horses, pigs, geese and sheep dogs, you have a lot of animals to take care of. What a fulfilling, but busy life! Thank You Karen for a nice day out!
