Peggy the pig is a retired actor. She was used in the Charlotte's Web movie of whatever year it was. Thankfully she now lives her life stress and expectation free on this property. She couldn't care less that she had a bunch of visitors, and just continued sitting and snoozing happily in her little shelter. Though she accepted carrot treats gently thrown into the reach of her snout.
I also had the joy of meeting Spash, a very handsome horse. I love horses so much! He accepted pats and carrots
And onto the food! It was a lovely spread, served on pretty tiered stands and plates, with lovely tea cups. First up, this stand. It had Apple Cinnamon Turnovers on the top. The second level was PB Oreo Mini Cakes, savoury scrolls, and sausage rolls. And on the bottom quiche, scones and miso orange cookies (the cookies were made by me as a tester for Celine Steen's new book).
The scones were exceptional. The best vegan scones I have ever had! Served with some strawberry jam (there was also apricot jam, but I am devoted to my strawberry... go red or go home) and some vegan spray cream. SO GOOD!
And mini sandwiches. I LOVE mini sandwiches! Below is a photo of my favourite, cucumber and cream cheese. But there were also some tofu egg salad and lettuce sandwiches as well.
It was such a lovely afternoon. Although it was meant to be a hot day, we were sitting on a well shaded veranda and a lovely breeze came through as well. It was wonderful to catch up with Lydia, as well as to talk to some other great people. And pony pats! Plus the event raised almost $1000 for ALQ, which is amazing!
Did you do anything for World Farm Animal Day or World Animal Day?
