Smile Our mini-zoo(:

Okay, so over the years we've gained quite a large collection of animals other than horses and some of them are quite interesting, but I will let them think for themselves(:


Dolly

She wanted a close-up. Here is her umm "beauty" shot.


Louie, the terror llama. He doesn't like it when you mess with 'his horses' and he will let you know by jumping on them as you lead them, lunge them, and even ride them. He has to be locked in a different pasture while you're working with the horses most of the time.



Jack, the cavy. He is still young and gets friendlier each day. He lives in his huge cage in the barn with his own heat lamp and he is extremely pampered.

More to come in the next post.

And here's more..


I know he's pretty common, but he's so cute, so here's Eeyore.

Eeyore and Louie.



Bonnie and Clyde. They have the biggest peronalities of any of the animals. If you're drinking or eating anything around them, you won't be for long because they will have it. They can even drink out of cups quite well. And if you're filling up their trough, they like to take the hose out and spray you with it. They love runnning and playing and are very curious. They always have to be right with you when you're in their pasture.


Bonnie. We just got her this past summer. When we got her, she preferred to be by herself, but now she's just as nosey as Clyde. When she was younger, she was used in the nativity scenes around town during Christmas. She and Clyde took to eachother as soon as they met, and now they're inseperable.



Clyde. He is such a ham. If anything is going on, he WILL know. He loves playing with anyone or anything anywhere anytime. He is nearing 2 years old and he loves to goof around and show off. His favorite thing to do is give kisses. He absolutely loves little kids.

Clyde and Louie.

Haha, my uncle has goats and we sold our potbelly. We also used to have a baby coatimundi but we sold her and we sent our two alpacas to my uncle's farm about 10 or 15 miles away.

There are two exotic animal auctions that we go to every year. We got our first ostrich from there then he was lonely so we got 3 more, and we got Clyde from there and some family friends got Bonnie, and later they decided to decrease their farm size so they sold her to us. We got one llama from an auction and the other from the exotic auction, and we got the cavy from a saddle club swap meet.

Next theyre looking at buying a giraffe, kangaroo, or a wallaby, but theyre expensive, so I don't know if it's going to happen or not. We also might get a Rhesus Macaque, but he's not very friendly, so we might not get him.

don't you need a permit to own exotic animals? If not that's AWESOME!

You need a permit for some exotics, but not all. Its mostly exotic felines and canines that you need permits for, but there are others. All of ours are completely legal, though.

And I havent got the slightest idea what we'd do with a giraffe, probably spoil it like we do the camels.
