Wednesday's special event was sheep shearing! 70 sheep needed a hair cut and we got to watch. The lady had a special device to hang on and save her back. Clever!
Ollie lasted long enough to see 2 sheep be sheared. He also liked looking at the lambs, corralled nearby.
We went to have a look round the other animals (pigs, goats, chickens, ducks, alpaca) and then stopped for a coffee. Staunton has a lovely little cafe and you get 10% off if you're a member. Ollie enjoyed his mini milk, sitting on a grown up chair!
After coffee, he had a little play in the playground. There's a little house on stilts he likes to play in. There is a seat and a 'kitchen'.

Then he had a ride on a donkey! So proud of him. I wasn't sure he would enjoy it but he was a natural! Sat properly with moved really well with the donkey's movement.
Finally, he fed the llamas. They had furry lips!! Such a lovely day out.
