New England Travels # 3 Connecticut Farm School

Present state of affairs:

Working on many fronts in the kitchen with my artwork, which means trying to find two pieces of work.  The hunt began yesterday. It continues today.  My search uncovered a couple of forgotten art gems from yesteryear. 

Back to the present:

My cousins took me for a walk around the local High School, which recently was equipped with an expensive generator for emergencies.  It is the size of a semi truck. Connecticut has some whopper storms. The generator is for preparation for a local disaster.

There is an agriculture school attached to the complex.  We happened to be there at feeding time. The sheep were fed first with a lot of bleating and pushing at the feeding trough.

Then the geese were given grain by the pond.  Note the enthusiasm of the goose in pursuit of the feed.

This is the record of my visit to the High School farm school in Connecticut.  (Yes, there are farms in Connecticut.) Thanks to my cousins!
