Anne McNally recently began her position as one of Winterthur’s Livestock Volunteers. She’s been able to get up close and personal with our seven Boer goats and Greenbank Mill’s four heritage breed sheep. Check out what she has to say about her experience so far, and some of her lovely photos capturing the spirit of our livestock!
“Animals have been an important part of my life since I was a baby. My boss told me Winterthur was looking for an Animal Husbandry Volunteer, and I knew this was for me. Monday, Wednesday, and Friday mornings I take care of Negandank Farm’s goats and sheep at Winterthur.
Having worked with Pygmy Goats at Brandywine River Museum’s Ring Farm, I was thrilled at the friendliness of this breed. Working around them is comical; they are so curious. I love photographing them. The sheep have warmed up to me, too. I think all of the animals think I’m their paparazzi!
Stay tuned for more shots of these amazing creatures. I am honored to be part of this program at Winterthur!”
