Howell Farm

We had a fantastic trip to the farm on Friday. We shelled and ground corn for animal feed. We visited the sheep and petted a baby lamb. We watched the pigs play and tried on the oxen's yoke. We saw the workhorses pulling the plow and visited with one up close. We saw some almost grown chicks and petted the mommy hen. What a great day!
