LOL! I do sometimes wonder about the number of animals I have.....
That number can vary, because we are always taking in something or other and trying to find a home for it. I've done pretty good at placing animals, but I do pretty good at keeping them too!
I have always been crazy about animals, and I learned my behaviors early, my family is always "rescuing" something or another and trying to find it a home. My mom did when I was little, and my sister does too. Heck, my sister takes in all the neighborhood neglected kids too and tries to take care of them. (I'm not good with kids, just animals)
Right now I "only" have at the place 9 horses, but only 4 are mine, 2 are my sister's and three are my friend's, 5 dogs (2 large and 3 small), a cat and three birds. Relatively few for me actually.
But I had to ask, cause sometimes people have actually asked me if I was quite sane in having so many animals. I do take care of all of them though, they all have their shots, annual physicals, good quality feed, supplements and anything else I can find to spend on, LOL!
Sometimes I just have to questions myself though. I actually had one person ask me if it wouldn't be a better thing if I gave money to humans in need rather than taking care of so many animals. That does make me feel guilty a little.
