Mary's Little Lamb?

On a recent day trip to the Farmers' Museum in Cooperstown, N.Y., I saw what I perceived as Mary's little lamb, up close and personal.

The mama and papa lambs munched on their lunch  out in the field, too, and I just loved them.

As a matter of fact, Mary had a slew of lambs there! 

 The museum covers more than 150 acres with buildings, barns and countryside vistas that take your breath away.
 The baby lambies were my fave.

Two little ones inside the stall of a barn nearly made me jump out of my shoes.

They looked little and soft but man, when they started "bah bah bahing" it was so loud that I jumped!

Those little lambie pies nearly scared the bezookers out of me!

I couldn't believe such loud noises were coming from such little animals. 

Cracked me up and almost made me want to high tail it out of that barn.

While seeing the little fellow shown at the top of the post, I couldn't help but sing, "Mary had a little lamb,little lamb, little lamb..."

Not a museum but I did go to Ireland to a sheep farm where the farmer let me help him shear a sheep. I watched the sheep dog get all the sheep into the pen. It was fascinating.

I have not. But this has to be the one you walked and walked in. 150 acres! Those lambs are so cute. Love them sticking their heads out of the hay. You do so many fin things. sandie

I think lambs are sweet sheep not so much they seem to get sillier as they grow older. We once had a working dairy farm called The roterlacter (I think thats right) where all the Sydney schools went to see how these farms worked sadly they are no longer operating .

Hello from Spain: I have not visited the living museum. Anyway I've seen live animals at a fair selling animals. Sheep are very lovely babies. Keep in touch

Such cuties!

Our neighbors raised sheep and during lambing season -- it was noisy all night long! Baaah, baaah. But so sweet.

There is a working farm in Kentucky where everyone working there was in charcter, so if we spoke of something from present day, the actors/workers would say, "It is 1850 and I know not of what you speak." Interesting, but frustrating as can be, because I wanted answers :)

Sweet post, Susan!

Aren't they adorable? I love the cuteness of lambs. We enjoyed Cooperstown several years ago but didn't visit the museum you write of. We did, however, visit the Baseball Hall of Fame (go figure). :)

One of my favorite visits to make is to a living history museum! I really loved a visit to Plimouth Plantation about 13 years ago and would love to return.

Love the little lambs, too!

I love the little lamb and did you know that the original school house featured in the poem, "Mary Had a Little Lamb" is in Sudbury. I have photos of it, somewhere, when we lived there. XOXO

The little "lambies" are adorable. I have seen them at the Hancock Shaker Village and they do make a loud baaaaa!

Have been to Cooperstown in "Leatherstocking country" as they call it. It is beautiful country; we have been to the Baseball Hall of Fame, but never to the Fenimore Farm Museum. Looks like a wonderful place to visit.

The little ones would be my favorite too! I love living history museums. We have one not far from us, Shaker Village. It's always a treat to go.

Hope you have a great weekend! :)

Awwww...I can just hear you singing. Th little lambs will do that to you :) There are a lot of little lambs and goats on the farms around my area. I always pull the car over and look. The farmers museum would be a place I would truly enjoy visiting.
