We start every morning almost the same way....
First destination for Day 4 is Hahndorf Farm Barn
It was off-peak season, so it was just us and another family at the farm that day.
Erin listening to milking instructions
When it comes to animals, Erin is a lot braver than her jie jie (who needs more time to warm up). She quickly raised up her hands when asked "who wants to milk the cow?"
Elyssa wanted to try too, after seeing Erin
Daisy the cow that was milked, oblivious to all the pressing and pulling ;-)
Next..... rabbit enclosure
Erin couldn't wait to cuddle them
What a Cutie!
(referring to the rabbit, not the hubs. hehe)
Daddy.... my turn!
Elyssa feeding the lambs
"Come, come little lamb"
Then we went outside the barn area. Saw this huge pig.
I'm all clean now! Just had a refreshing mud bath
We had to quickly move away from the pig pen when the pig vigorously shook it's body, spraying mud everywhere. :-)
Then we went to the deer / ducks/ goats enclosure -
Hungry Deer! Or greedy deer?
Erin wasn't scared !
"Come deer.... I'll give you a carrot treat"
I gave this deer a piece of carrot too. After gobbling it down, the deer tried to chew my t-shirt!
"Daddy, daddy, give me more food to feed the kangaroos!"
The funny thing was we went to the kangaroo enclosure via the deer/ducks/goats enclosure. (the small gate next to Erin). When we tried to get back to the first enclosure, the goat escaped to the kangaroo enclosure and the kangaroo was trying to get to the first enclosure! We looked around but there was no farmhand in sight. Err how?? Don't think we were supposed to mix the animals up!
So we spent some time "hearding" the animals to their rightful place. I couldn't help laughing looking at hubby trying to push the goat back to it's rightful place.

Part of the farm
There were camels too!
When Erin saw this, she straightaway exclaimed "Mummy, it's a girl!" I was surprised and asked her why. Her response : "Because she's wearing an EARRING!". Wuahahaha.
Look at the horns!
Jersey Cow and more Sheep
Erin went on with daddy to see the donkeys after that (had to go via the deer enclosure). Elyssa wasn't so keen so I stayed outside with her. Hubby said Erin wasn't scared at all. Uhm...somehow that same brown goat followed them to the donkey place. Maybe it had to option to roam everywhere?. Either that or hubby just gave up trying to push the goat around. haha.
With the goat nicknamed "The Friendly Brown Goat". -pic taken earlier
Before Erin left, she even hugged the goat, kissed it (aiks!) and said, "Goodbye!!! I love you friendly brown goat!"
We left the farm after that. Will continue about Day 5 in another post.
