Today was our field trip Centennial Farms at the Orange County Fairgrounds where the children visited with chickens, baby chicks, rabbits, peacocks, pigs, geese, sheep, oxen, cows, and calves.  The children (those brave enough) even got to pet and rub the head and body of a billy goat, calf, and a cow!  We walked through vast gardens of all sorts of vegetables like sweet peas, tomatoes, carrots, Brussels sprouts, broccoli, and lots of different lettuces.  They had a few fruit trees too like: star fruit, apple, and guava.  There was a big barn where they demonstrated how they milk the cows and goats.  And a tall windmill using the breeze to power a water pump to demonstrate how they get water from the well above ground for the animals to drink! We also learned that an Ox is not a breed of their own! They become an Ox when they are altered and are used as a working bull!
