This past week, we had the good fortune of getting to spend the day with our adorable niece. A perk of coming to stay with Aunt JoJo and Uncle J is getting to have fun with all of the animals. Luckily, Miss Joplin is so young, she doesn't realize it's work! As stated in a previous post, bottle feeding is part of our daily routine. So, Joplin got to help with our newest addition to the farm; Autumn, a plains zebra. Autumn loves being pet on her face and neck and will nuzzle up to you when it's time to be fed. She is so sweet with a very docile temperament. And, as you can see, aside from her sweet nature, she is absolutely beautiful. If we could get her to eat a bit faster, we would love it, but until then, we spend 20 minutes holding up a bottle every three hours throughout the day. She is a part of the petting zoo, so when you come for your tour, you'll be able to experience her gentle nature.
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!
