At the Elk Farm with Mom and Grandma Yoder

(by Grandma Yoder)

It was a quiet day at the Elk Farm until the Yoder’s showed up. The goats were very glad to see us, and came running to greet us.  The elks, well, they would just as soon we stayed away, so we mostly did.  At the fence one of them gave a not-so -friendly greeting to Ryan, so we backed up and gave it more space, though, we were quite safe on our side of the fence.

Now the potbellied pig, he was more interested in the oats on the ground but still, he didn’t want to be touched by the two busy boys.

We tried to leave the mud (a-hem) that was on our shoes in the goat pen with the goats and headed out to the pasture to meet the little horses and alpacas.  Now Michele had learned that we need to give the alpacas lots of space, but the little horses were gentle and happy to meet our little group.

Ryan gets up-close-and-personal!

One little fellow startled a bit and swung his hard nose into Luke’s face and caused a small meltdown from Luke which he recovered from fairly quickly. Mostly he was startled as well, but I am sure that head was not real soft when it swung into Luke’s face.

All in all, the visit was a success and we ended our visit with a romp on the trampoline. 

That is, Luke and Ryan were on the trampoline, not this Grandma!  I love those kids, and wish I could borrow that energy!
