We wandered down to Gorgie City Farm earlier today to check out how the animals were doing. We'd heard there were new lambs and indeed there were, these Ryeland lambs are very young and the mother was most attentively licking one of them.
As you can see from the photo, it was very sunny, though cold too. Outside the pigs were enjoying the sunshine:
Driftwood, our favourite farm rabbit, but he was too busy chasing a chicken to be bothered to come out of his shed to say hello to us.
Meanwhile Dexter the farm cat was basking in the sun, trying not to get annoyed by the excited children who gathered to watch him.
After our visit, we had tea and delicious flapjacks in the Gorgie Farm Cafe, which is a lovely place for a snack.
