Out and About – Quinta da Quintã

This weekend I went down to my parent’s place and on the Saturday afternoon decided to go visit our neighbours and friends at the Quinta da Quintã. It’s a “Rural Tourism” farm where you can come spend some time and get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. I love it down there. Being a farm, there are of course several types of animals walking around. The pictures below are a mix of some taken during the summer and some taken recently.

We’ll start with the “guard dogs”, they’re obviously not really dogs, but they sure guard the property. They’re pretty loud as well.

Apart from the geese, there are also some ducks walking around…

… and a close up of baby boy… 130216-mother and calf-003

This little guy isn’t quite allowed out yet, he’s only a week old after all, but should the weather start to get better I’m sure he’ll be allowed out to play with the other animals.

Oh, there are also some sheep walking around, but I didn’t get any pictures of them, they were in a field somewhere on the property.
