Anyone thinking that Saturday’s chilly weather would thin the crowds at Egli’s Sheep Farm’s free annual Open Barn event was sorely mistaken. Throngs of kids and parents dressed for the weather and arrived early to get a hands on farm experience and meet some of the newest arrivals like lambs, goats, alpacas, bunnies, chicks and exotic birds like emus and peacocks.
