    Just saw a thing about ostrich riding on TV.

    Any of you ostrich people ride, or let people ride your ostriches? Are they tame enough for that?

    Just Wondering??(cause it would be fun to say that i have ridden a bird!!!)


    Do you consider inhumane or something?

    I think it is So weird that no one replied. I think riding an ostrich would be hilarious!

    I was having my tv repaired today and the technician was telling me about ostrich farming. He told me that they will kick the crap out of you and are not nice at all! I asked him if they would be more docile if you hatched them from eggs yourself and he said there is nothing docile about those birds.

    I'll pass on the riding.... :eek:)

    I know people have done it. Personally I wouldn't.
