Busy week on the farm

An exceptional number of people have come to visit the farm this week. Yesterday, I had a visit from my friend Shelly and her daughter Olivia who came to see the lambs. They enjoyed that, and also had a visit with my very ancient donkey.

Today was a productive day. Poppy the Milking Devon produced a bountiful 10 1/4 lbs of milk this morning.
