BARN YARD ANIMALS!!!

This past weekend Dad and I went on one of our excursions... almost every weekend we journey to one, two even three of our favorite antique stores.  This weekend  there was a sign on the side of the road BARN SALE - Antiques, Park in Pasture.  YIKES, my first thought was with the cows!  We parked in the pasture, thankfully no cows were to be found... but we did come across a few barnyard friends.  I was glad I had my camera along.

Bird house on one of the buildings.
Horse on top of  a barn!
Couple of hens running loose.

EMU? On the farm??
Peacocks were everywhere...
Or was I seeing the same one that just kept moving around?

Here is a young male (1 yo) just about to get his tail feathers.
