Animal pasture

Come hug our animals in the animal pasture! Our animals are used to being petted and hugged by children. As long as the children are calm and kind to the animals, they will not be skittish at all! They will happily approach you. Go ahead and scratch our goats behind their ears! They can't reach there themselves, so they will love it!
