FARM VISIT

Now a relatively impressive display of incompetence: I deleted my own post. And I can't get it back. So now I am reposting it.

In Torino, we visited Lidia's cousin Fiorella's farm. This was really nice because Lili is such an animal lover and farms can always have animal babies too...

 

Quick relief for missing our chickens in Canada - Torino chickens are cuddly too.

In Piedmont they mostly grow beef cattle (dairy comes from e.g. Alto Adige). The calf in the front here is about a month old.
