Last year, Baby Animal Days were rather miserable due to the cold, snowy, rainy, sleety, undecided nasty weather. Yesterday arrived with blue skies and sunshine....and 7000-7500 guests, all eager to see baby animals.
I think the horses were happy to have a large place to graze in the midst of all the visitors.
Strollers were everywhere.
The fur trader/mountain man site has been moved this year and they have a new little cabin to base their activities in.
This fellow is busy making a fire.
Indoors, visitors were allowed to try writing with a genuine quill pen. It worked amazingly well, although judging from the ink on the fur traders hands and cloths, maybe it isn't always as easy as it looks. I managed to make a decent entry while keeping my hands clean.
The woodwright shop stayed really busy. Gary sat outside with the shavehorse making spoons.
Neil brought along a display of some of his carvings.
The children's area had heavy usage.
As always, the coffin was in constant use as a photo op.
If you are in the area, please stop by!
