We have working animals, including the goats and the guardian llamas and Anatolian shepherds, and we have older animals, like Rosie the donkey.
Rosie will look at you with a pleading, hungry face, but please resist feeding her your picnic. She is much too fat and needs a strict diet and plenty of walks. When the path is not too muddy, we take her for evening walks through the farm Secret Garden. She is training to lead a donkey cart.
Where there is grain, there are field mice. There are several cats on the farm. If you see them asleep, encourage them to get up and get back to work.
