Village life… babies

gillianknits.comMany of the animals are reproducing.. this colt was born a couple of weeks ago.  His name will start with a C.  The foals are named like hurricanes…one letter at a time and this year is a C year.  We have Canadian horses at the village, a breed that recently celebrated 350 years.  They are hard working and efficient animals. They pull the carryalls as well as all the working wagons at the village.gillianknits.com

This little guy is resting up…he will be creating havoc in a few weeks.  They have just started letting the piglets out during visiting hours.  They are always a huge hit with the young visitors.  When my kids were little, it was the highlight of their day to visit the farm and play with the piglets.  They will be allowed free range until they range too far afield and start destroying things… then they will have to stay in the pig pen.  Last year’s piglets tore up the flower beds at Chrysler Hall the day before they were banished.gillianknits.com

This is Princess Charlotte (UCV edition).  She was born just after her royal namesake.  Some Brownies watched her birth and were told they could name her if they could come up with an appropriate name.

Today I saw a mother swallow sitting on her second brood nest in the woolen mill…

..and this little girl is being raffled off in the staffroom to raise money for the staff association.gillianknits.com
