it’s been four years since our last trip to Rhinebeck! we finally made it there after our 2 hour drive from nyc became a 4 hour drive (we hit some bad traffic — total standstill! and then the kid got car sick . . . ) we finally made it though and what a glorious event it was!
Rhinebeck is absolutely a kid friendly place! the Kid had a total blast walking around the hay maze, playing with all the gadgets they had set up in the kids area, seeing his first kangaroo and feeding a rather lopey looking goat!
bringing the Kid to Rhinebeck also meant spending virtually no time in the super crowded yarn and fiber filled aisles . . . which was all right because we got to spend quite a lot of time checking out the lovely animals.
a rather rare soay sheep from cairn o’mohr farm in ashford connecticut! so cute and docile!
this supremely loveable herdwick sheep from helder-herdwyck farm. i wanted to climb into the pen and squeeeeeeeeze him!
and rarest of all! a vicuna from Victory Farm in Missouri.
