Our SpiralScouts hearth went on a field trip to Lighthouse Farm Sanctuary last Saturday. We are working towards our "I Make A Difference" award. After the tour by Wayne Geiger (founder of Lighthouse Farm Sanctuary), we volunteered our time to work on the farm.
Our group: mucked out the pig barn; mowed the lawns; weed-eated the walkway between the chicken runs; and dumped out the geese, duck and chickens' water "bowls" (they were blue kiddie swimming pools), scrubbed them out and re-filled them with fresh clean cold water.
The rectangle sheep pupil. Robert discovered it and insisted I photograph it.

On our tour, Wayne, showed us that horses are tatooed inside the lip to proved ownership.
A pony named, Monster.
Aubrey -- 10 1/2 years old.
On Wayne's farm sanctuary, he has rescued or saved:
lots of horses,
a heritage turkey that was about to be a birthday dinner,
and a ton of chickens.
Also many goats.
Here is Wayne holding their oldest rooster.
