I was driving slowly down the 11th Concession yesterday and passed Puck's Farm. I noticed several of the animals in the pasture to the north of the barns. There were horses, cows, a donkey and geese. Thinking there might be a chance for a photo, I backed up, got out of the Jeep and walked to the fence with my camera. As I stood there contemplating the bucolic, but chilly scene, the animals all started to head my way. After a couple minutes, there was a horde of critters up against the fence, eyeing me expectantly. I introduced myself and scratched as many heads as I could. These friendly creatures are, of course, quite used to people wandering all over the Puck's Farm grounds. They certainly seemed to be making me feel welcome...and it felt really good.
