Tuesday's Tails, #10

This week I thought I would share pictures of some of the critters who have been visiting us at the Farmer's Market recently.

A lady had five of these Golden Laced Polish roosters for sale. She brought them on two separate occasions and finally sold them all this past Saturday. My friend Sharon took this picture for me with her cell phone, thanks Sharon! The lady was carrying this guy around like a baby and he kept falling asleep in her arms! LOL!!


A couple of weeks ago, we had the "Three Amigos" come and visit. They are three young wethered Alpacas. They were all perfectly groomed and beautiful until they decided to roll in the loose, dead grass!




One of the vendors occasionally brings one of their Pygmy goats for the children to pet but I don't have pictures yet. We also always have vendors and customers who bring their dogs. Most of them are very well behaved but there is one who likes to chase the poor little goat!  I need to remember to take my camera every week so I can capture all the animal happenings at the Farmer's Market.

Carolyn Renee,
They do give it a farmy kind of feel, especially the crowing roosters!

Teresa said...

That would be nice to really get a feel for farm life at the market. Those alpaca are adorable!

Millie said...

I would most certainly NOT like to visit a farmer's market. I much prefer to stay at home and let people come lavish attention on me.

Love the chicken's 'top hat'! Hilarious!

Cute pics. Very typical of animals to be nicely groomed then roll around in the dirt of grass!

Cute pictures of the alpaca. We have them at our farmers market too (which won't open until June again) We can't sell any animals at our market -- or I'd get rid of a few roosters that way too!

Alica said...

That is one handsome rooster! Sounds like an interesting mix of animals you see there.

Now that's a farmer's market. Thank for sharing all the pictures with us. :)

Teresa,
The "city folk" sure get a kick out of seeing the animals!

Millie,
Madeline and Abigail agree with you 100%!!

TWG,
It was funny to see them roll almost immediately! :)

Fearless Farmgirl,
When I saw that I just HAD to get a picture!

SweetLand Farm,
It is typical! LOL!!

dr momi,
They sure were a hard sell! I actually think she might have given one or two of them away for free!

Candy C. said...

Alica,
They sure were nice looking and actually very well behaved, no pecking or fighting! :)

LindaG,
It helps to draw in customers too when they can see animals as they drive by!

Ngo Family Farm said...

I agree with Linda! No animals at our market, but I really think there should be :)

The alpacas were enjoying all the attention!

Nancy,

Kateri said...

The alpacas look like great big cuddly stuffed animals. And that is one handsome rooster!
