I am a British born, living in Canada. Moved from the countryside in June 2014 to an "Active Adult Community" which is a whole new way of life.
My blog is about all aspects of my daily life.
I would never make a farm animal a pet - leads to too many problems down the track. Know one farmer whose daughter turned a lamb into a pet. Ended up costing over $10,000AUS for vet care when it broke a leg and he did not have the heart to put in down with his sub-teen daughter intears and begging him to save her "Lambie"!
I still say, lease a herd for the grass!
Actually, sheep are better grass cutters than goats, I believe President Roosevelt used them to 'mow' the White House lawn at one point!
I just love farm animals — as you can see here! Lovely photos, Gill. Especially love the sheep!
I never tried to make a pet of a pig, but heard they make good ones. People have those pot-bellied ones for pets.
