"How rare and wonderful is that flash
of a moment when we realize we have discovered a friend.
- William Rotsler
the Petting Zoo
The animals are raised on our farm with the love and respect
they deserve. The petting zoo consists of a baby camel, llama,
donkey, cow, two goats, two sheep, chickens, rabbits and pig.
During the warm summer months
there is also
a giant desert tortoise. Sometimes
we can bring an armadillo. Bottles are provided free of charge
for the animals on bottles, which are usually
the cow, goats, sheep and camel.
We sometimes have a baby water buffalo, a mini-cow (a zebu, looks
like a brahama) a Scotch Highland (very hairy, shaggy cow) or
a baby yak.
