Giraffe name??

For those wanting to know the outcome of the 'name the giraffe' competition.

It was announced on the PaperArtsy blog IN THIS POST...

Well done to the winner.


Here are some more photos for you or our day trip...

first, packing him safely in the back of the car, he wouldn't fit in the boot.

and here's me carrying him around the farm....

making a few friends...

though several new friends tried to eat him...

but we made it onto the next field  in one piece, 

and then had a wander through the stables, having a nosey at the machines..

We had a look at some eggs in an incubator..

Colin was concerned he would get his spots sheared off if we stayed too long....

So we went off to the beach...

Darcy & Colin. x


  1. Adorable Darcy :) Love the sheep! I had sheep as pets when I lived in the country... had their wool sheared so I could spin it :)

  2. I love how you took Colin to the farm and the beach... hope he didn't get too much sand in his hooves...

  3. Clearly a Colin - and having a wonderful time, by the look of it!

  4. I had NO idea he was that large. You did a fantastic job, and loved seeing him in "action."

  5. Darcy, Darcy, Darcy!!! Colin is just too cute for words!!! It looks like you both had a fun day visiting the farm and the beach. You're both welcome to visit central Texas...come one over, I have an extra room for you...Colin can sleep with the cat.

  6. What a lovely name that was chosen 'COLIN' What a sweet heart. and looks like a lovely day out for you both Dxx

  7. He is a total dude! Great to see more pics of the big farm day out. Next stop PA HQ???
