NEW BUNNY AT WINTERPAST

We have a new female Dutch breed bunny donated today who will be available for snuggling and feeding next time you visit Winterpast Farm. She loves carrot tops and romaine lettuce. She is spending the chilly day inside our new heated garage space where she has been meeting all the other bunnies and guinea pigs. She and the others will be outside on Wednesday when we are open for visits on what looks like will be a much warmer day than today.

Farmer Mary just checked on goats and sheep..no baby news.

CATY THE PREGNANT GOAT

Pregnant goat CATY was just standing in the empty wading pool this morning staring off into the distance at Winterpast Farm petting zoo in Wake Forest NC. Separating yourself from the herd and staring off into space are actually two signs of impending labor but CATY doesn’t show any udder development or a very large tummy yet. Farmer Mary is pretty sure in this case CATY is just waiting patiently for more hay to be delivered into the pool. She just wants to be first in line!

GOOD MORNING

Good morning from Winterpast Farm petting zoo in Wake Forest NC. BETSY the goat is showing increasing signs of possible “kidding” (that is what you call birthing for goats and then the babies are called “kids”). Farmer Mary will keep a close eye on BETSY, who happens to be her personal favorite goat at Winterpast Farm, today. Stay tuned!

CARAMEL CREME THE GUINEA PIG

Occasionally a pet rental from Winterpast Farm petting zoo in Wake Forest NC leads to an adoption. Sweet CARAMEL CREME the guinea pig has been adopted by a local family and has quickly become a huge part of their lives. He loves to cuddle and this pic shows him keeping one young member of the family company during a recent haircut. When animals become real family members you know they are in the right place.

WHAT’S INSIDE AN EMU EGG?

Yesterday Farmer Mary accidentally broke two emu eggs. Here is what was inside. One perfect yolk and one that was starting to go bad. An average emu egg is equal to from 6-8 chicken eggs.  

The emu at Winterpast Farm haven’t laid more eggs since the big snow so we have no fresh emu eggs to sell for eating. However, Farmer Mary has an intact egg to view and , now, some broken shells to touch when you visit Winterpast Farm petting zoo in Wake Forest NC.
