Visited the rare breed farm with my 3.5 yr old and 5 month baby. This farm is advertised as 'fun for all ages' and I'd agree there are an interesting selection of farm animals. However, upon my travels round the paths I noticed a number of round worms on the ground!! In their hundreds/thousands next to the sheep pens. I know we should all wash our hands after visiting such farms,(which is provided at this farm as a cold water wash station), but I cannot believe they obviously neglect to worm their livestock. With my toddler quite happy to kneel down in the grass to pet the animals I find it quite distressing to think that she could have easily ingested a worm or it's eggs. I grew up on a farm and make no mistake I can easily identify a round worm! I have had enough experience of them in dogs and horses. Needless to say, upon seeing the roundworms everywhere I disinfected my pram and all of our shoes on our return home. The farm is unmanned so I could not complain on site. Pretty disgusting really as described as a family petting farm and was recommended to us by the tourist office in Fort Augustus.
