who knew that there was a petting zoo right here in town?
the last time sean and i went to spend an afternoon with farm animals, it was at meadow maze in pitt meadows, about 40 minutes drive into the 'burbs.
this time around, we hit up maplewood farms in north vancouver a couple of weeks ago. for a mere $7 per person, we were able to spend a day out in the sun, walking around the spacious and well kept grounds and checking out farm animals.
* shetland pony
* hereford cows
* jersey cow
* pot bellied pigs
* belgian draft horses
* icelandic horse
* roosters, hens, ganders and a peacock
* new zealand white rabbits
* and goats of all kinds
here's some pictures of us hanging with the animals:
guests are able to go into the goat paddock and find themselves on the webcam
goats and their chin beards
did you know that when goats poop, it comes out in a flurry of round pellets? gumball machine style. i cracked up laughing when i saw that
who could resist big ole' bunny feet?
bunnies chillin' side by side
love it. these bunnies look so unimpressed by our presence
so many animals, so many pictures taken. for a slideshow of our day at maplewood farms, press play or click here for my flickr.
