This is the outside of the house. Only the front is painted and the sides are shingled.
Our tour moved inside and George showed us how the Coggeshall family would have cooked on the fire and hearth.
This bucket next to the fire was filled with tallow. George said they would have used this to seal their bowls.
The new baby lambs were so darn cute. These two are whispering secrets to their mama.
The oxen were so huge but very friendly. The two of them strapped together could plow a huge field and ready it for planting. That's Tae's head in the picture-look at the size difference.
As soon as the kids brought the hay over, the animals came running. There were two oxen, a horse named Blaze and a donkey, who George tells us, protects all the other farm animals from coyotes and fox.
More sheep lounging in the sun. Can you tell I loved the babies?
