Random Petting Zoo!

June 24, 2009

On our way home from shooting Mika & Jonathan’s Atlanta wedding, we stopped to get gas off I-16. I’m not even sure what town we were in but when we pulled into the gas station we saw that there was an adjacent farm. I guess not so random when you’re in rural Georgia, but what was random about it was that it was set up so that visitors could feed the animals! Rock on!!

We inquired inside about feeding the animals, bought a bag of food, and fed the animals – a bull, a cow, a llama, some goats, a donkey, and lots of geese! We had such a blast in the 30 minutes we spent there!

Here’s a few shots of the adorable animals and of us feeding them. Matt really loved it when I freaked out as I fed them. I was so certain the animals (especially the bull) would bite off my hand, but they were very sweet! Still, my reaction is pretty hilarious!

The baby goat was so stinkin’ cute!!!!!

My hubby is so much braver than I am!

I fed the little cow straight out of the bag. Not so bad, so I built up my courage…

… and fed the bull from my hand! Ick! Bleh! Ew! He completely slobbered all over my hand. Fortunately, though, he did not bite my hand off as I feared!

And finally, the llama. Why is the llama last? Perhaps because it is my favorite? Nope. Perhaps because my hubby’s parents have an alpaca farm and llamas and alpacas look so much alike? Nope, not that one, either! I put it last because no picture of a llama is complete without…

… A FINALE TO INCLUDE THE LLAMA SONG!! Oh yes! It’s so addictive. Seriously, how many times are you going to listen to it trying to memorize the words so you can sing along?! Come on! The orange slayed the rake?? LOL! Don’t forget to pause the music player at the bottom of the blog before playing the video. Hope this brightens your day! : )

    Oh, I love this post!! Beautiful animals! We have cows, dogs (lots of dogs), cats, did have horses but they were sold. We have wild rabbits and squirrels and deer and turkeys, etc all around our home and I love it!

    This looks like it was so much fun!

    Great pics and I love the one of you feeding the cow!

    You were so funny with the bull. Although he was huge and intimidating. And he did slobber…a lot! I loved how you had to wrestle him for the bag of food!

    Llama, Llama, Llama…Duck!

    Did you ever see a llama, kiss a llama, on the llama, llama llama llama llama llama llama duck!

    Christy, that is awesome! We just have 3 cats and 2 dogs, but considering we just have a townhome I guess that's a lot! LOL!

    Thanks, Erica. Glad my terrified look entertained you! Hehe! Just kidding! I was just grossed out by the thing slobbering on me!

    Matt, I wanna go back and see them again! It's only 3 hours from here. We should take Peanut to meet the baby goat!
