Rooster Cogburn Ostrich Ranch 2 of 2

The folks over there are brilliant!

The goat penthouse was ingenious!  Ami kept going back to feed them in the penthouse.

First you put food in the cup (a wiffle ball with the top cut off).  Next you crank the wheel (sandbuggy rims with handles) and the giant belt takes the snack up to the goats.

The goats get all excited as the ball get closer and closer.

They also have goats you can hand feed and pet.

They look like bunch of mounted goat heads at first, which is disturbing, but then it’s just funny to see them clambering to be the near the food.

We all took turns kissing them.  Actually we were holding food between our teeth for them, which sounds grosser than it was.

Next we fed the deer.

We all want one for a pet now…not that we are ever going to get one, but we can pretend.

They are so sweet, gentle and cute.  Like goats they only have teeth on the bottom in front.  I did not investigate the backs of their mouths, but it’s a pretty safe bet that they have top teeth in back.

And because we love making out with animals some of us fed them with our mouths too.

It cracks me up how this one looks like it’s going to eat JP’s face.

Two things I know about this photo:

1. I love nuzzling with deer.

2. I need a hair cut!

I didn’t even have food in my mouth for this one.  I think we might be engaged.

The deer were my favorite, but the larkeets were a close second.

They flock to you the second they see nectar cups in your hands.

IMG_7725

This is me trying to open the nectar cups for the boys.  I learned later that the birds will take the lid off themselves if you hold it for them.

IMG_7763

That expression is priceless.

We were all loving every minute of it!

We had SO much fun! I hope for your sake that you get to go some time.
