It was so much fun to visit the animals at the Gentle Barn. We hugged and brushed the cows and fed the horses, held the chickens and stoked the pigs and fed the sheep. It is so important for children to be connected to animals and be able to express their love for them. In our curriculum we discussed farm animals and how they should be treated, so that at our visit the children were already familiar with the treatment of the animals. We all had a great time at the Gentle barn!
