    We are are far from normal here but It is not just here. A man in Michigan took his pet camel into a Petco. As long as pets are on leashes it's supposed to be okay. To be honest it wouldn't be any worse than pigs which are everywhere here now. I love pigs in the form of bacon and pork chops but not running around in stores. Going to the vet when pot bellied pigs are there is a ear drum bursting nightmare. Our exotic vet here sees them but our exotic vet in St..Louis didn't.

    I think Buelingos are neat looking. Like a big Oreo. People in our area are always looking for a get rich quick scheme. My in laws were like that and tried raising expensive rabbits.

    My friend in Asheville, N.C. has pictures of bears in her back yard. Nope, don't want it. I don't want any wolves. We are supposed to have bobcats here but if I see I am going to fill my pants. I came face to face with 2 coyotes once and a gigantic drooling buck in "heat" and that was enough for me.

    People eat emu eggs? Eww. They must be really big. I will stick with chicken eggs. They are llamas. And in a town near here people have camels. That is weird even for here. There is a man by our vet who has his own zoo. I have not been there but he has a bear. It got loose once and I was kind of fried about it. We don't have wild bears here and i don't want any. I have never seen an ostrich except at the zoo. The emus here escape a lot. They must be smarter than they look. They are not in the road but right on the other side of the fence - like a grass is greener type of thing. We are just glad we are not near the mega hog farms north west of us. There used to be a chicken ranch here. Total stench.

    LOL. I know. I love both kinds. My dad had beef cattle and he had horses too. Personally I don't like hamburger or milk but have consumed plenty of both. I didn't have a choice what I was allowed to not eat until I let home. Combining beef and milk in the form of a cheeseburger is really gross to me. Gag. We have tons of both kinds of cows in the area. Within a mile of my home I have too many cows to count, about 45 horses, pigs, 3 goats, sheep, chickens, peacocks, pet rabbits, eagles, plus other assorted wildlife. I like the goats and peacocks the best. The sheep are cute. This is not the place to live if you are sensitive to smells. If you want some fertilizer though you can have as much as you want for free but you will have to help yourself to it. A little further away neighbors have some llamas and emus. I'm not sure what the neighbors do with those. They get loose a lot. A wild turkey is a about 5 feet from my window right now. He loves corn. While you have civilization we have a zoo plus a commercial pumpkin patch, a vineyard, lots of corn fields, soybeans fields, and still some winter wheat that has not been harvested. We are in the bread basket and lots of fields are not planted this year so prepare for higher prices. What we don't have is dependable phones, internet, T.V. or power.. We are hopeful though. If we can get emus surely we will someday be able to use a cell phone at home.
