Today we went to Iron Down Farm, near Deddington, from where we get our meat at the Farmers' Market.

Here are some pet lambs, one of which let me pet his wool (gorgeous and curly) and then attempted to suckle all my fingers. He then went on to suckle the trainer of the little boy in this picture, whose name was Thomas, and told us all about the sheep.

And on the way out, we were lucky to catch a glimpse of some very shy ducklings dashing back to their straw
