Open Farm Day
On Sunday my Mom and Dad took me to an open farm day which was held in Paradise Valley. When we arrived we saw a lot of animals like pigs, chicks, guinea pigs and a whole heap of other animals.
The first thing I saw was the beehive. It was an interesting story about the bees because I never knew that bees had been around for millions of years. Honey is used in a lot of medicines that keep people healthy.
Another thing that I enjoyed was getting to see how a sheep dog herded three sheep by following just the farmer's whistle commands.
I also saw a sheep being sheared very fast and a lady spinning wool in the old fashioned way with a spinning wheel.
The vets showed how to ultrasound scan pregnant sheep, horses and cows. My Mom uses ultrasound to scan humans.
I also held chicks and guinea pigs and played with a Collie dog puppy. I wish I had my own pet.
I had a really fun farm day out!
