Heavy Petting

As most of my regular readers know, we own a small ranch. So far, it has just been “hobby” ranching. (Translation, all of our money that doesn’t go to the oil companies goes to maintaining the ranch and animals.)

However, we have now decided to start a small business to help offset some of the ranching costs. So, we will soon be starting up a petting zoo. This will be a traveling operation where we will setup a petting zoo at birthday parties, etc. We have successfully done volunteer petting zoos through our 4-H club. However, we are seeing an unmet demand for petting zoos for hire.

We already have pygmy goats and plan to add rabbits, chickens, and a miniature horse. We may add other animals if this thing takes off.

This week, we actually picked up a couple of rabbits that we found through the classifieds. They are 5-week-old Lionhead rabbits. Take a look.

    Hi, I’m glad you’re opening up a petting zoo, and I hope those baby rabbits survived. Usually when they’re taken away from the mother before 8 weeks but definitely before 6 weeks, they usually don’t survive. Just thought I’d inform you incase you buy baby bunnies in the future so you can avoid that awful fate. Hope your business succeeds!
