The animals that we visit are horses, sheep, and oxen. Eleanor seems to mostly like the horses because they're so big, they come over to you, and she can always see them.
There are farmers markets every Saturday morning, and I bought my tomato plants and basil there this year. The only negative is that on really hot days, there is not a lot of shade available on the main street, Duke of Gloucester. I don't know how the people that dress up as colonists survive the hot summer days out there, but I'm sure they've got some tricks up their sleeves to keep cool.
