Last Saturday was open day at a nearby Arola farm and as Junior really loves animals, we naturally had to go. I wanted to wear something casual and farm-y, so out came my Dungaree Dolls.

We saw ponies, chickens, goats, cows, a humongous pig; you know the normal farm animals.

In addition, the farm also has some more unusual animals. 

An absolutely beautiful pair of white peafowl
Two black swans

The main attraction of the farm is a small herd of buffalo or bison. The newest addition to the herd had only been born the previous night.
The bull

By the way, the title of this post is actually a grammatically correct sentence. It uses the noun buffalo as in the animal, the city name Buffalo and the verb to buffalo (to bully). It means: The bison from Buffalo, who are bullied by other bison from Buffalo, bully bison from Buffalo. The Wikipedia article about this sentence can be found here.

Any linguistically inclined among you will be interested to know, that there is a similar play on word in Finnish. Piilevissä piilevissä piilevissä piilevissä piilevät piilevät piilevät. It uses the verb piillä (to be concealed), the noun piilevä (diatom) and the adjective piilevä (concealed, hidden). Roughly translated it means: The hidden diatoms are concealed in the diatoms concealed in the hidden diatoms. So now if you are ever invited to a dinner party with Fenno-Ugrian linguists, you can wow them with this.


  1. What a wonderful dungarees! Also the bag is adorable :)

    1. Thank you! When I first bought the dungadees, Hubby didn't think much of them but I think they're growing on him...
