Western Travel - Heritage Farmstead Museum (Part Twenty) - Plano, Texas - #TravelTuesday

Welcome to my weekly column #TravelTuesday featuring places I've discovered during my research trips or just wandering around in historical areas. I hope you enjoy my discoveries.

Last week we went inside the one-room school house on the property of the Farrell-Wilson House. Today we'll visit some of the animals on the farm.

Aimee Wilson was a champion sheep raiser and won several awards for her sheep. The sheep currently living on the farm are similar to those that would have lived here during that time. (Just FYI - they do not offer a petting barn/zoo or the ability to feed these animals during your visit).

Big pigs (who really do oink and wallow in mud).

One rooster and many chickens.

A guinea fowl perched on a railing. Messy, aggressive birds.

And finally a burrow.
