That all sounds like heaven to me!

Currently we have a guinea pig, hedgehog, 3 snakes, 2 lizards, and a tortoise. I have owned many other critters in the past and currently work at a veterinary hospital (anything to get my animal fix!) We are getting 15 chicks the first week in May and 3 nigerian dwarf wethers in April. SO excited!

I used to breed hedgehogs and at one time had over 100, so what I have now feels tiny. I'm hoping to ease my hubby into "mini farm" life and add some geese or ducks next year. A spotted mini donkey and a pig (pet only) is also on my wish list. :)

I'm loving the fact that I am not the only one with an "addiction".

Ok... I'm game, 'cause I thought we had gone into retirement 2 years ago, sold all but a couple horses, and HELLLLO... we're back again! LOL! I don't know why we ever thought we could retire from livestock anyways... don't they have recovering addiction groups for this? ;)

So I'm going with the "old" us and the "new" us ;)

2 years ago -

14 horses
80 chickens (7 roosters)
45 ducks (Muscovey & Rouens)
6 sheep (5 ewes, 1 ram)
11 goats (9 does, 2 bucks)
40 rabbits
2 pot belly pigs
4 dogs
3 cats (1 house cats, 2 barn cats)

Kids pets - 1 hedgehog, 1 ferret, 1 degu, 1 tarantula, 1 boa and 1 python

Today -

3 horses & 1 pony
5 chickens (1 rooster)
5 ducks (Muscovey)
no sheep
8 goats (5 does, 3 bucks) (more on the way)
22 rabbits (more on the way)
no pigs
2 dogs
8 cats (all barn cats)
10 quail (just processed 30 for freezer camp)
3 pheasants (waiting on eggs from this trio)

Funny how things work huh? ;)
