Best Birthday Ever

Thanksgiving Point has a small farm that is almost like a petting zoo. They have horses, cows, alpacas, goats, geese, chickens, rabbits, sheep, long horn sheep and so many fun animals to see and feed. 

Fifteen years ago when they first opened, they had a rabbit hutch but the rabbits kept digging too many holes and were escaping daily so now they keep them in separate cages because they seem to multiply.
Can't see you, I need a trim.

My granddaughter had her birthday party there where she chose to have a horse painted on her face.  All her friends had their sweet little cherubic faces painted, ate pizza, played games and then each child was given a little plastic sack full of food so that they could feed the animals. Next, they brought a horse in the party room for all the children to pet. 

Then they rode horses.
