Last weekend we went down to my Auntie (Angela) and Uncle’s (Wayne) farm in Brogo. It’s a small community near Bega with beautiful landscape and lovely little farms. Angela and Wayne have opted for a holistic method of farming and treat all their animals as individuals with names. Both are incredible cooks and all their ingredients are either grown on their farm or from one of their lovely neighbours.
Going to the farm was a great opportunity for us to expose our 15 week old puppy (Harley) to some new environments and animals. Our awesome puppy school teacher, trainer and dog-guru Amy Smith gave us the advice to expose her to as much as possible in these months so that she’ll have no problem with any of it when she’s older. Harley really enjoyed running free on the farm and meeting all the animals, even if the cows were a little too inquisitive at times :-).

Yes, that’s a little paw print in that cow paddy. Just testing the temperature? :-)
There >was< a lovely sheep skin rug here.
The cats weren’t too fond of this oafish dog running around in their house.
The farm animals were just as curious about Harley as she was of them.
This is how horses use a different part of their nose to smell.
A bit scary at times maybe.
Getting a good itch.
Photobombed by a horse.
Ah farm life is tough.
None of them want to play!
