This blog is a place for me to share pictures, tell stories and write about our family, our farm in Dover, Arkansas, our Faith in Jesus Christ , and our love for nature, animals and people. I hope it often makes you laugh, sometimes causes you to think, and sincerely gives you insight into who we are as we travel this amazing journey.
2011 First Baptist Dardanelle Fall Fest Petting Zoo
Our third petting zoo of the year was for First Baptist in Dardanelle. They had a huge Fall Fest with the entire community showing up! We took a lot of animals: two goats, two ponies, the donkey, the mini cow, a goose, two ducks, a sheep and some rabbits. Several Wrangler Club 4Hers showed up to help: Malcolm and Kurt Penka, Dayna Walker, Libby Bailey, and Cody Chuculate. It was a lot of work, but a great success!
We took a big set up this time, three pens, one for the main group of animals (ponies, donkey, goats and sheep) that the kids could enter to pet them, and one for Ellie the mini cow and one with a goose and two ducks in it.
