We went to the animal fair...

The birds and the bees (and the deer, goats, porcupine, geese, peafowl, donkeys, sheep, pigs, bears, chickens, rabbits, squirrels, raccoons, foxes, bison, turkeys) were there. The big baboon (or potbelly pig, rather), by the light of the moon, was combing his auburn (ish) hair (and snorting peanuts)......



Actually, we went to the Yellow River Game Ranch which is down the road from T-Bone's old growin' up and stompin' around grounds. He loved visiting the game ranch as a child (and still does) and the girls LOVE going there now too! Actually we all do!

The sheep always look so sweet and gentle...



The deer run freely throughout the woods and the walking paths...


And some are extremely tame.....




This guy was really happy when we made it to the barn to feed him....


You know, goats always seem to be hungry and they eat absolutely anything .....



This guy NEVER moved from his spot. You literally had to throw the peanut into his mouth. Many peanuts bounced off his head and he didn't care; he merely waited for the next one to be thrown. You can see the peanuts at his feet. He would not even bend his head down to pick them up!


T.Bone (the squirrel whisperer) even made a new friend...



Yellow River is the home of Beauregard E. Lee, Georgia's official weather prognosticator and internationally recognized furry groundhog.



He has his own groundhog-sized antebellum home on the ranch. Tiara 2 celebrates her birthday on Groundhog Day so she really enjoys visiting Beau.


It was a wonderful time spent by all!

The pig is so ugly---why people want those things as pets I don't know! But the goats are kind of cute in a creepy way :)!

I see your URL pop up on my site meter from time to time. Thanks for de-lurking and leaving such a sweet comment!

Hope you have a great, long weekend!
