F – Alphabet Dating

Farm time! I was so excited when I heard the farm we were going to (meanwood urban valley farm) has Alpacas! I once procrastinated so much at university that I adopted an alpaca from Loughborough instead of doing my essay, so when I knew I was going to be going up close to an alpaca I was so excited! 

We arrived and paid in the shop for entrance, it was only £2! And 50p for a bag of food to feed the animals obviously! We got a map of the farm and set off on our adventure to meet the animals. 

Sheep were first, they ran over as soon as we walked up and they were cute, bit smelly but cute! We found some chickens are that, and pigs and all the while we were learning the sign language that went with them! 

We then met the goats, they’re hilarious! On every video shannon took, you can hear me arguing with them in the background. They ran eachother for a little bit of food! Every time I wanted to give a baby goat some food it was rammed out the way by a bigger one! After arguing with the goats we found piglets, guinea pigs and chicks! So cute! We then washed our hands (following a tutorial) and had some lunch in the cafe. It was so nice! I had jacket potato with tuna and cheese and shannon had jacket potato with hummus and roasted vegetables, very nice and I would recommend people to eat there. 

It was finally time…the moment I had been waiting for…ALPACAS! Omg aren’t they just hilarious. They’re like sheep with long necks or fluffy giraffes. They’re my new favourite animal ever, they’re so underrated! We got a great selfie with an alpaca and a goat that I’ll post below! 

We then said hey to some donkeys and some huge pigs before having a wander around the shop and washing our hands again obviously! I like alpacas and goats but don’t want their spit on my hands. 

We left after giving a quick wave goodbye to the alpacas. 

It was another fab day, and a great day out for all the family! 

ROLL ON NOVEMBER!
