I have volunteered in the upper barnyard at the Gentle Barn for over 3 years. I work a shift during the week. I particularly enjoy this time because it is quiet and peaceful, usually just me and the animals. Many of the goats and sheep come up to be petted and stroked - they are just like dogs and love the attention! The chickens are friendly and Norma Jean follows me around waiting to sit on my lap. And the pigs, big and little (pot bellies), want snacks and attention too. When I bring bananas, even the shyest creatures like the llamas and little Raina the goat become my friends!
