Highwire Deer and Animal Farm Adventure

IMG_3525   A few weeks back, Mom and I went to the Highwire Deer and Animal Farm. The goats greeted us and showed us around. They also angled for feed the entire time. They reminded us of our dogs and so we kept feeding them. IMG_3531   This little guy would run up to you and slam his hooves into your calf. It hurt but he was so darn cute when he leapt up. IMG_3535   I loved this bird’s head. Reminded me of how I look some mornings when I first wake up. IMG_3554   These birds were so majestic looking. IMG_3559   My shadow with the big tortoise. IMG_3567   This cracked me up. It’s something Emerson loves to do too. IMG_3586   This goat reminded me of Rora our golden retriever. She was so eager for foot she craned her neck as far out as she could. The other one was more like Reagan–skittish and shy. IMG_3581   The alpacas did not spit at me–mostly relieved, but slightly disappointed. IMG_3595   Mom fed this cute little deer. IMG_3598   The donkeys were so sweet! Each had a distinct personality. IMG_3605   The camel was somewhat cooperative with the photo taking. IMG_3608   Donkey and Zedonk.   IMG_3620   This little guy was my favorite. So polite. And what gorgeous horns. IMG_3643   Mom was delighted to see a kangaroo hopping about. IMG_3645This deer was pretty shy and refused to come eat from our feed cups. His companion walked right over the rope and came up to Mom for food. It was a really cool way to pass an hour on a Sunday afternoon in September.

  1. What fun! That white baby goat is the cutest little thing. Thanks for sharing your photo, Kourtney!

  2. What a wonderful place to see/pet/admire the animals. Goats always fascinate me, the way they look into our eyes with a kind of 6th sense. I’m told they’re ‘dumb,’ but from their stares, I really can’t believe that.

    This was great, because I could enjoy images of these cute animals without having to smell them. My kind of petting zoo. 😉

    Fun photos, and it sounds like a fun time. I loved the kangaroo! 🙂

  5. Awww thank you for my visit, Love animal farms like these, and take my granddaughter to visit a small one near us… They get to feed baby goats and lambs when born, etc.. Thank you for taking me out on your trip 🙂 Sue

  6. What a great way to start the week! Thanks for sharing your wild (truly LOL) adventures with us. Animals are the best.

  7. I love the soft sweetness of alpacas. They’re not nearly the spitters that llamas tend to be. Their poop is also a great fertilizer (and scentless)!

    Ooh, my husband would love the camel! But he probably would give the alpacas a wide berth—a llama did cop an attitude with him once. 😉 Those little goats are so cute, but the smells can be a bit overpowering!

    • Very regal looking. LOL. Lesson learned. They smelled pretty okay. There was a good breeze and the farm was nicely spread out. I’ve been thinking of you lately–I’m totally obsessed with Bones. Watched 2 seasons in 2 weeks. 🙂

    So many oohh ahhh moments looking at these pics. My first thought when I saw that bird was the same as your’s – bed hair! And I went oh dear when I saw the speckled deer 🙂

    Love that bird with the mad hair- mine looks a bit like that in the morning too Kourtney!

    I enjoy petting zoos, and this one looks well-maintained, judging from your pics. Quite an eclectic assortment – kangaroos, goats, and birds!?

    • It’s an older couple who keep the farm. They only open it in the summer to guests. The rest of the year it’s just theirs. Yup, a very interesting assortment. Makes you wonder how the conversation went from Honey let’s get a few goats to how about an alpaca or two?

Any thoughts or reactions or favorite foods you want to share?
