CHILDREN from the reception class at Sidmouth's St John's School enjoyed meeting these Red Ruby bullocks on Wednesday during an educational visit to Blacklake Farm, East Hill.
Fourteen children, aged four and five, have been learning about different pets and farm animals and were keen to get up close to the real thing.
Reception teacher Jane Wuerzer said: "They went into a field and threw turnips for the sheep and talked about different foods for animals, then let the chickens out and fed them."
Nick Broomfield, who runs the farm, talked to the children about egg hatching and baby animals and let them stroke friendly goats that nibbled their clothes.
