Piedmont Farm Tour...Farm #2 Avillion Farm

We left the buffalo farm and headed to the next one on our list, Avillion Farm.  Here is the short description they give on Facebook..
"A small farm in rural northern Orange County, NC, Avillion raises Shetland and Jacob sheep, angora goats (colored, white) and angora rabbits (Germans, German crossbreds, French)."
Our visit in photos with a few sheep facts I found on PBS...

Texas, Wyoming and California are the U.S. states with the highest number of sheep. 
PBS

Bits of sheep can also be found in tennis rackets (strings made of sheep guts), candles and soap (tallow rendered from sheep fat) and most cosmetics and skincare products 
(lanolin, an emollient found in sheep’s wool).

 Biggest dog ever and one of the friendliest:-)
 He was taller then me but that is not saying a lot:-)





Sheep and goats may look similar, but they’re different species. Sheep have 54 chromosomes, while goats have 60 chromosomes.

 When I saw this Mom and baby I thought of being protected under the shadow of God's wing
Get out and explore.  I suggest you visit a farm!
