Fun Times at the Farm

As I’ve mentioned in my previous post, my parents have a farm. It’s not a big farm by any means, but it keeps them busy and I think it brings them a lot of happiness. I don’t know the exact count, but they have more than 20 animals running around, including sheep and goats. Right now, there’s a little bit more of them, because of the offspring.

I came back to the Czech Republic for the summer and it feels very relaxing to be home again. I’ll share some of the peace and quiet of my leisure days with you in the form of photos. Mainly because I love taking photos and I love to share them with other people 🙂

Matylda the Sheep - Merino sheep
I have to start with Matylda the sheep, because- well – it’s Matylda the sheep! You can read about how special she is in the About section. Matylda has two beautiful children now and they are just as curly and cute as she is. …Yes, I think sheep are cute. 🙂
Goat and the shepherd dog
Every time we come close to the animals, they come running and begin demanding food. I thought the pose of the goat in this picture illustrates that very well 😀 Of course our Australian shepherd dog has a lot of fun with this.
Cashmere Goats at Matylda's Barn
It was very hot lately, so the animals are trying to find spots where they could hide from the sun. Here is the cashmere goat Dorota and her offspring.
Bublina the Goat at Matylda's Barn
This goat cracks me up. She is probably the funniest animal we have. Her name is Bublina (Bobbles) and she is basically a pet goat. She will follow you everywhere, push her head underneath your hands to make you pet her. When she was little, she used to cry everytime we were leaving. Plus she makes these precious funny faces 😀
Funny sheep
“Oh, you want to take a photo of me? Ok, I’ll just casually lay my leg like that…”
Australian Shepherd Dog demanding a walk
And then there’s the dog.. “Hey guys…We need to go for a walk now… Please.. Walk now!”
Hand dyeing yarn at the farm
Of course, we never come home empty handed from a walk… My mom collected wild flowers to dye wool from our sheep. Don’t ask me how is that possible, but the color is supposedly gonna be purple. I know, haha.
Red berries
I’ll say goodbye for now with these awecome berries from our garden. Yum 🙂
