After my trip in January to the farm, I was really really excited to return for my Spring visit, documenting the seasons of this beautiful farm for 2011. Lots of baby lambs and calfs had been born since Maia and I last visited and the weather was absolutely perfect for us. It was just idyllic.
To tie in with all the new little animals, we took the opportunity to invite a few local children to come and have some pictures taken on the farm too. Many thanks to their parents for letting them in with the animals and helping us. This was all a little experimental. A farm seems like an ideal place to take pictures of children, but in fact it can be quite dangerous and quite a lot of thought went into the visits to make sure everything went swimmingly. In the end I think we got some lovely shots of the farm, kids on the farm, baby animals and just the farm in general.
I love this one of Mia with the Lleyn sheep, she just loves all the animals:
A not so little lamb, they grow fast!
Maia enjoyed her first ride on a horse. I think Harvey is now on her love list.
Some of the beautiful children on the farm and the beautiful stone work and rustic wooden doors:
I was going to have a slideshow here, but it looks like I can’t put a few individual images and a slideshow without it including the previous images. I will post the slideshow as a separate post and put it below this one. Instead, here is the view of the farm from the ice cream stall just over the valley. A perfect place to stop and admire the view:
