Triplet baby goats @ HHI petting farm

Sunday, January 27th, 2008

triplet-goats.jpgSea Pines Lawton Stables on Hilton Head Island is always a fun place to visit because they have a petting farm, pony rides and trail rides. It’s even more special now after triplet goats were born Jan. 20. Read about the rare triplets here.

We took my son to see the baby goats today snug in their stable with mom. As an auntie to triplet boys, I couldn’t help feel for the mama goat. She looked tired. Poor woman. The petting farm also has a new batch of baby bunnies among all the other typical barnyard animals. All of which- plus discounted pony and trail rides for South Carolina residents – makes a visit to Lawton Stables well worth the trip.

Lawton Stables @ 190 Greenwood Drive in Sea Pines Plantation, HHI is open daily from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. For information, call 843.671.2586. Lawton Stables also hosts children birthday parties.
