A trip to Muscoot Farm – Chicken

The chicken house at Muscoot spreads over two levels. There’s an upper level interior portion, which connections via a ramp to a lower level exterior part.

For the most part the animals a Muscoot are nice, but fairly ordinary. The chicken are, however, quite spectacular.

When we arrived the one below was prancing around all alone on the outside. A still picture doesn’t really do justice to his antics.

A trip to Muscoot Farm – Cow

For some reason the kids were very keen to have a picture with this cow. So I took one, and then this one of the cow alone.

I like the way that he/she is looking my direction. The mouth is open and it seems as if he/she is saying something to me (shades of Mr. Ed. and yes I know that Mr. Ed was a horse and not a cow).

A trip to Muscoot Farm – Donkey

As we approached two of these animals came charging down from the field to eat. There was some discussion between our two grandkids regarding whether this was a horse of a donkey. The consensus was that it was a donkey.

I liked the way that this one finally settled into standing in a corner. It almost looks as if he/she is posing.

A trip to Muscoot Farm – Sheep

Often when I’m taking pictures of animals they turn away from me making it my only option to take pictures of their backsides. These two did that too, but I was able to wait them out – until one of them turned its head to look in my direction.

The animals above are clearly sheep, but at first I though those in the picture below were goats. On further consideration, however, I concluded that although the heads were a little ‘goat like” the bodies, and the wool seemed more like sheep.
