I finally realized there was a petting zoo/farm near my house. I was out looking for birds and stumbled upon what looked like horse stables but then I heard parrots yelling and other weird noises coming from the back of a house. On the side was an entrance and it said $5 fee. I headed in thinking I wouldn’t find much and left over 2 hours later. They had horses for riding, farm animals to pet, a pond filled with geese, swans and ducks and all kinds of other critters. Most of the animals (excluding the horses) were rescue animals. It’s a non-profit farm run by volunteers. One of their events is a summer camp called “Warriors for Autism”. Kids can spend time working and playing with the animals and interact with other kids. I have found a new favorite place to add to my list of Saturday morning walks. No rare birds here, although I had a few eastern bluebirds fly over, but just a lot of fun.
That last picture is my favorite. Molly was sleeping and I leaned over and snapped her with her teeth sticking out.
