Petit Jean Petting Zoo

For about 4 years we have been going to the Petit Jean Petting Zoo. Each time we go we have the best time. The owners have become our friends as well. All the animals are very kid friendly and the word no is never spoken to an excited kid. Each and every animal can be touched, held and hand fed. They have goats, kittens, cows, chickens, donkeys, dogs, ducks, a baby deer, horses, trail rides, a fox, a peacock, ferrets, rabbits, a pig, hamster, a skunk, a large barn to accommodate the whole family. We have made such great memories and have watched some of the animals grow up. We usually eat dinner at the Mather Lodge and then go on down to the Bear Caves and climb up and down the mountain. If we are there during the sunset hours we continue on to the lookout point and that is breathtaking. Hope you enjoy the photos. Some were taken on my iphone and other were taken on my Canon.

Was this one of the Billy Goat's Gruff? Maybe Papa Goat.

This is Dixie. Dixie has resided at the petting zoo since he was just a babe. He used to be terribly undisciplined, running about chewing on shoes strings and dragging customers by their pants leg. Maturity and 104 degree temperature must have tapered his bad manners.

I could just hear it coming, Mom could we please just have one more cat..... She know my weakness. I'd have a bundle of cats if life would just accommodate them. I love cats and that is a very honest statement. I have always, since childhood had a cat and sometimes bundles of cats. Gee it is so hard to say no, really really hard. This little tabby was absolutely fabulous.

These two ferrets were adorable. Most of the time they slept on their back, all laid out due to the heat.

I have a feeling by the look on the pony's face , this duck is a trouble maker.

Hey Dixie that happens to be your drinking water!

Say what? Who cares dude. It's so hot things aren't registering with me any more. It's all beginning to become a blur.

When you get done texting, I'd like to have a word with you.
