Pull Court, Tewkesbury
The old stable block converted into the boarding house
The day we visited the farm was the wettest day we've had in ages, since we are currently living in Dubai, hence why the picnic was moved from lunchtime, which we had in Morrison's, to the pub in the evening.
Despite the rain and unsuitable footwear we saw geese, turkeys and chickens close up and cows, sheep and miniature ponies in the fields.
Our favourites were the pigs and as O called them 'proper, real, pink piggies with curly tails and big noses'
We had a small problem with folding the pushchair, you can see how much use I was in the pouring rain while hubby struggled with it for ages, almost abandoning it in the car park. You'll also notice that we forgot to put O in the car while we fought with the pushchair in the pouring rain. It's been a long time since we've parented anyone that small.
Looks like so much fun in spite the rain and grey clouds! :) #animaltales.ReplyDelete

the pigs had loads of personalityDelete
What a lovely change from Dubai - sometimes it is good to get a contrast to daily life. Your final photo made me laugh - it reminds me of my sister's struggles with our pushchair.ReplyDelete
both my sister and her husband admitted they nearly left it in a supermarket car park when they first got itDelete
What a great day out for all of you, it's great that O got to see all the animals on the farm. They really are proper piggies, our resident saddle back isn't as pink and round as they are. #animaltalesReplyDelete
I've not seen proper piggies as O called them for a long timeDelete
Now that's a farm, and I daresay all the more authentic for being damp. Great action shots of the proper piggy trotting towards you!ReplyDelete
we all fell in love with that pig, so friendlyDelete
Those are cute pigs, I do like pigs. And I definitely do not miss wrestling with a pushchair and very little people-although they are handy for carrying lots of stuff when out and about!ReplyDelete
the pushchair was both a life saver and a hindrance, I'm glad those days are long over for meDelete
What a shame about the weather but still lots of lovely animals to see :)ReplyDelete
it was only the 2nd day out of the two weeks we actually had rainDelete
I used to live near Tewkesbury and worked at the National Trust office there for a while but I have not heard of this farm. It looks like a great place to visit. Thanks for adding your farming tale to #AnimalTales ... and I love that piggy snout!ReplyDelete
we had a lovely visit there, never really paid much attention to the farm, but the whole school is set in the most amazing groundsDelete
