We currently have five bottle babies, all of them being dairy goats. When we realize we have to take on a bottle baby, we're not normally excited. However, once we get started, we fall in love with each of them. They have the cutest personalities! How cute is this milk mustache?
For Indie's birthday at the beginning of the month, we decided to try out an open day at The Menagerie. Meaning, it wasn't necessary to call for an appointment. We loved it! And we hope you did, too.
We know that in today's society, with our lives being so busy that a lot of people do things on a whim. At least that's the way that things often work in our lives! So, we've been offering more open days. This Saturday and Sunday, we will have open hours again! On Saturday, you can show up to The Menagerie anytime between 10am and 4pm, and on Sunday, you can come anytime between 2pm and 6pm. We've added a few new animals, too, so if you haven't been out in the last week, we've got new stuff for you to see!
Give us a call to come out and see the animals! 580.430.1269
Today we celebrate America! Land that we love! We at the Menagerie also celebrate a few more birthdays of people and an animal that we love. My Aunt Alberta turned an amazing 90 years old today. She is the lady that I credit my craftiness. Many days were spent in her craft room making all sorts of goodies. I loved those days! She was also my Sunday School teacher, helping me learn the books of the Bible and encouraging me to recite them in front of the church. (Thank goodness I had my cousin DaNae standing beside me reciting them, too!) She not only taught many stories and lessons from the Bible but has truly lived by God's Word. Such an incredible woman! Also, our great nephew Sawyer turned 1 year old today! He is such a sweet boy, full of smiles. And at our petting zoo, Indie the zebra turned one, too! We have learned so much about zebras since we first brought him home. For example, did you know that zebras are born with brown stripes? As they mature, their stripes turn black. Also, there are three types of zebras: the Mountain, the Plains, and the Grevy's. Indie and his friend Autumn (who also lives at The Menagerie) are Plains zebras.
We will celebrate Indie's birthday on Saturday with open hours from 10am to 6pm. Although we are normally appointment based, no appointments will be necessary on this day. Admission is the regular fee of $6 per person with each person receiving a small cup of feed. Free hotdogs will be served from 11:30am to 1pm and 4:30pm to 6pm. Group photos with the zebra at our photo tree are available for $5 each and will be given to you on a disc. Give us a call at 580.430.1269 if you have any issues finding us or have any other questions.
Each day as we wake up here at The Menagerie, we never know what we're going to step in...literally and figuratively! Each day is a new day, and we try to make the best of it. Follow along!
