Welcome back if you are a regular to Country Kids and if you are new please join in. You will find plenty of inspiration for enjoying outdoor space and please do share your own adventures. We support the National Trust 100 things to do before you are 11¾ along with all other ideas for family fun outside.

Winter grazing brings kids and animals together

Here on the farm we have let all the goats and alpaca out to graze the paths around the lake usually reserved for the tractor rides. The animals are delighted to munch on the leftovers of the summer growth while it saves Farmer Nick on Hay bills and strimming costs. The bonus for the guests is having the animals wander freely around with us on the morning feed run. This young lad was quite fearless striding on through them all on his way to the deer field, he certainly had an adventure or two to take home. I hope you have an outdoor adventure to share too on the link up below.
