During the Christmas Holidays we visited Cannon Hall, which has a ‘petting farm’ full of sheep, goats, pigs, llamas, rabbits and guinea pigs amongst other things.
I think cows might be considered a bit dangerous for the visiting children, so we found a couple of concrete versions in one of the sheds instead. I think the idea is to demonstrate where milk comes from, though of course it doesn’t really show how cows are really milked these days.
However, my niece and nephew found it thoroughly amusing to milk a pretend cow. I found the whole thing a bit surreal.
