Wow, what an amazing day we have had at the Westmorland County Agricultural Society Farm Open Day at Heaves Farm. We were complimented often on our good answers and questions and we listened carefully and showed excellent manners throughout the whole day.
Here is what some of the children had to say on our return…
I loved it when a calf came and licked my hand. It felt slobbery! AB
Did you know cows have 4 stomachs? ER
My favourite thing was seeing the piglets and the lambs. GH
I liked seeing the sheep dogs as they are my favourite animals. They are well trained, MAB
I liked to see how the dogs rounded up the sheep . He showed us which whistles meant left, right, walk and lie down. CH
I really liked the baby animals – the chicks, the piglets and the sheep. CR
I enjoyed listening to Storm the dog’s heart beat using a stethoscope at the vets. FH
I enjoyed pretending to help the sheep give birth. PH
I enjoyed the little sheep. They were very calm when you touched them. All the animals were well trained. HR
Thank you so much to all the farmers and helpers who made the day a really memorable one for us all.
