We desperately need spring to come to our area. Everyone is so sick of the snow so on the first semi-warm spring weekend we headed down to the Critter Barn to see the baby animals.
We arrived around 10:30 and the parking lot was getting fuller. The girls started with the pony.
There are so many animals everyone can see their favorite, from chickens, to goats and cows.
This is Mr. Chops the oldest living pot belly pig.
There are lots of rabbits to pet, they sit on tables to be at an accessible height for kids.
There is a cat room and they all seemed to be very comfy on this table.
You can hold a little duckling.
Or watch a milking demonstration. The kids were encouraged to come up and try to milk the goat.
This big guy liked to have his ears scratched.
And an entertaining episode of “Goat of Thrones” had the girls narrating for a while.
We had a fun Saturday morning petting animals, talking about how cute they are and even learning a thing or two. I appreciate the many hand washing stations and all the volunteers that are in each room to help out.
The Critter Barn is open for spring hours Mon – Wed from 10-1, Thur – Fri from 10-7 and Saturday from 10-3. Admission is free but a donation is requested.
