I'm back from one of my cousins confirmation. It's been so nice spending time with my family! Great company and lots and lots (and lots and lots) of good food!


My moms cousin, the farmer, took Marie and my cousin to look at his sheep and lambs. Bot the lambs and their moms were a bit weary of strangers, so the rest of us were told to stay on the other side of the fence. I think this was the highlight of Maries weekend. This, and feeding the cows. One of them tried to "eat her hand". I'm sorry I did not get a picture of that. Her expression was priceless!



My highlight this weekend, as far as animals go, was to see about 20 muskox grazeing about 15 metres away from us when we passed them by train. It's very rare to see them, and they only stay down in the valley during spring. I think I find them even cuter than sheep. But much more intimidating too. These things are big!

(you can click the pictures to go to flickr and take a closer look at the cute little lamb tails)

That's cool that you got to see some 'skox! They're cute, but they're primitive creatures, so yeah they can get kind of violent.

What a fun trip! I used to feed cows at my grandparents' house, and I always treasured those trips... until the farmer put an electric fence around the field. OUCH!

Oooh, sheepies! They're so cute!
