The Petting Zoo...


Hi...how are Ewe????
this petting zoo has been around since the 70's...
That would be the 1970's....


it is open every summer....it is free...
the animals are loaned to it by nice families...
(Hey Pawpaw...see the GOAT)
just saying....

I think the goats are the favorite attraction...




the donkey or burro...looks very bored...
it has a warden to watch over the petting...
for some reason they want to bite...
of course this was one of Hotrod's favorites...



Mr Peacock decided to do a little show for us....
so pretty....he has a mirror in the corner of his cage...
he loves to look at himself...
Mirror...mirror on the wall....

this is the entrance...the petting zoo is in the middle of a park...

I don't know who enjoys it more...
the kiddos or the adults...
we now have a 3rd generation enjoying it...

you can even have a picnic...

or a photo op with our favorite guy...
yep that's me...the shorty of the group...

I have always wanted a petting zoo for kids to come out to the farm and enjoy. That one has some great animals.

So nice to hear the nice details, concerning this Petting Park. Sounds as if the animals are well taken care of. And the people too.

Re: My city blog... I had a pic and link to it, on top of my Sidebar... this goes to prove my thought that not many people look at the ding-dang-sidebar anyway. lol.

I said, in that top of my Sidebar, that I did not want Comments there. And to click on the pic, and go there, if one wanted.

The only visitor I have had, is my regular blog *stalker.* :-( Meaning, Site Meter shows location of lots of vistior blogs, and I get more than one visit a day, on my regular blog, from this person, in this particular city, near me.

And I have never seen a comment from this person, as far as I know. One does get to know the general where-abouts of our readers.

And this same near by visitor, was going to my city pics blog toooooo! Others were not.

It got spooky and I pulled the plug on the new city photos blog. Well, I took the link to it, off of my Sidebar. The blog is still there, but only I can access it now.

Only way to stop a *stalker* is to make one's regular blog Private. And people have to ask to be able to read it. But how do I know, that the *stalker* would ask, and I'd not know. Blahhh...

And.. "My Little Posse" blog link, at bottom of my sidebar, is just for me to see when new posts are put on the blogs I follow. I do hope no one thought I had this *exclusive* blog at "My Little Possee"!!! sighhhhhh

Too much info, I know.

The perfect summer activity(ies) for the little ones -- animals and water. Looks like the girls are having more fun than he is!
Stay cool! :)

What a great summer place for the kids. I know when my son was HotRod's age, he would have loved going there. Even I would love it!

Cindy (Applestone Cottage) said...

Looks like so much fun Deb!
I really enjoy that kind of stuff and free is even better!
Have a lovely weekend too,
Cindy
