Snakes, Bee's, possibly Bear could be among the obsticals unforeseen. Although we are cautious to avoid any possible encounter, keep in mind, it is possible. If you have Bee allergies PLEASE avoid riding or be prepared to medicate yourself if stung. And Please let your guide know if you have allergies.

With the exception of our miniature donkey's we purchase baby animals each year in the spring to have little and cute young animals for children (and adults) to enjoy. We hand raise them and they are all loving and friendly. Our Traveling Zoo consists of a Lambs, Goats, Several awesome Bunnies & Mini Donkey. Please feel free to ask questions about our zoo animals while we are at your party, we love to educate people about farm animals and their uses! We set up a fence at your party in a 12 x 20 foot area and use our own tent if needed. Children and adults may get in the fence with the animals to brush and pet them. There is no feeding allowed as we don't want anyone to get accidentally bit!
