The Animals out at the Renaissance
Here is a Lorikeet. They are beautiful birds. There was a display set up, in which you could pay a small fee (I think a dollar or two) you could go in and feed the birds. We went by while they were on a break. I learned that the reason they take a break is to allow the birds to digest the food that they have already been fed before they feed more. Why I didn't think of this on my own, I'll never know. I just thought it odd in years past that they would take a break. The nice thing about going by on the break was that I could take pictures of the birds without people I did not know being in the pictures.
Here is a beautiful donkey. I honestly think they are one of my favorite animals. I heard this story once that all donkeys bare a cross on their backs. So since hearing this I have always paid close attention to the back of the donkey and sure enough every donkey that I have seen since hearing this has had a cross on its back. I can't say one hundred percent that all donkeys I have seen have this because it has only been in the past ten years or so that I was told this and so I don't know that all donkeys before this time hold true. But I am amazed that thus far it has held true.
Next we have a baby goat. He was so cute and acted a bit shy. He was just to adorable not to take a picture of him.
Last we have a pony. Now this fellow (I assume fellow) was rather feisty. He was chasing the others around in the petting area. He was definitely the dominant one of the pen. It was fun to watch him frolic around and play with the others in the pen.
