In a former post I have shown you old farmhouses, cottages, mills, barns, etc. from our rural open air museum. Today I want to show you the wonderful animals they have there. Some of them are very rare breeds which have been very common in former times (unfortunately I couldn’t find the English translations for some chicken and duck breeds). All these animals are very trustful and tame, and made a very happy impression on me. I would say, they had something like a smile on their cute faces. I had posted the photo with the white goose before, but it belongs in this context. I enjoyed my stay in this open air museum a lot and gave some crums of my cake to a white chicken.
The good-looking guy is living in the old farmhouse. He is a blacksmith and works with the big horses. They have several old carriages for special celebrations and some old agricultural machines. From time to time the horses are getting shoed and the sheep are getting clipped, then they bake bread in the old stoves and spin the wool. I couldn’t photograph the sheep because they were on a remote pasture. The cats and the dogs were probably hiding in the shade as it was quite hot on this day.
