A Barn and Random Fun

Maybe it's silly but I get excited when I can exceed expectations for a challenge. In this case I not only found a nice barn for the Barn Collective, I got to get some pictures inside the barn and even from the back! And best of all, there were baby lambs! 

I got photos for some other linkups, too, and put them in the format for Good, Random, and Fun.

The Good: Loudoun County Farm Tours meant that various farms were open to visitors and I chose one that was not too far and was likely to have lambs. I was not disappointed. This cutie was 9 days old. 

Here Momma Sheep is keeping watch over her sleeping babies. They were only 2 and a half days old!

There were plenty of adult sheep too. The farm is named Three Bags Wool.

The Random: I was surprised to find a mural inside the barn! There were other touches of art on the farm, and now I see that the farm is available for parties and weddings, so that explains the extra-nice decor.

The Fun: Families were enjoying the farm. The pond had plenty of frogs and dragonflies to interest children.

Other attractions included baby chicks, a rope-making demonstration, and a straw pony.
