    Well, here is my little list:

    1 steer (Jeffery)
    1 goat (Ronald)
    2 pigs
    2 barn cats. (Freebie and Hotwings)
    2 inside cats ( Fatty and Mamma) though all summer they prefer it outside
    6 dogs ( they are truely the loves of my lives. but are not allowed around my chickens at all)
    1 Rooster (Jack)
    3 Standard Hens (Lucky, Buffy and Sydney)
    5 Bantam Hens. (aka: as those darn bantams) lol

    The Steer is my daughters 4-H project. the rest are pets.
    Jack has attacked everyone that goes down to the barn except me. And he has only attacked my husband once. And that was only because he was trying to put them in their coop before dark. My dear husband harbours no bad feelings for dear Jack, though the kids are not fond of him.

    I'm glad we aren't the only one's considered an Old McDonald farm...

    We have people stop here often and ask if we can show their children the animals and if they can take some pictures of them. We seem to attract the unusual...animals and people...LOL.

    We have:
    chickens (standard & bantam)
    goats (standard & pygmy)
    wild hog
    pot-bellied pig
    emu
    cattle
    four horn sheep
    horses
    rabbits
    dogs
    fish pond
    wild ringneck, diamond & mexican doves

    We always have something very tame that kids can pet and get their pic taken with.
