Ok, to start, I should explain that we're on a ranch, so have lots of room for the menagerie you're about to meet. I promised my wife, an avid animal
lover, that I'd not really refuse her having animals (I love them too), but I think we have gone a bit ridiculous.
Anyhow, first up are the horses.
This is my wife's horse, "Laredo", he's a Palomino Gelding.
Next is my horse, "Fancy" (on the left), she's a Quarter Horse Mare, and nuzzling "Kay-tee" on the right, out of her stall. My wife was introducing
Then, here's "Kay-tee", she's a Paint Mare.
Next up are the dogs. Here is "Jedi", he's a Boxer/Pitt mix.
Here's "Domino", he's a Lab/Chow mix. He seems convinced that our bed is his bed.
Here are the Chihuahuas. The little black one in the very back is "Lola", then left to right, there is "Ling-Ling", "Lupe' ", and "Daisy"
Then there are the kitties. First up are the barn cats. "Smurf" is on the left, and "Patillo" on the right. They are tasked with keeping any mice out
of the barn. Never seen one, so guess they are doing their job?
Next up are the two kittens, "Ramses" on the left, and "Isis" on the right. The wall is taped off for doing a faux castle stone paint design on the
Next is "Doofus" (though he's actually a very smart cat). He's also 19 yrs old, had him since he was a little ball of fluff (and teeth, and claws).
There's another cat I don't have a picture of, which is "Catabrie" (Tabby Cat).
Next is "Suzy", she's a Malucan Cockatoo. Unlike most female birds, she can talk pretty well, with an impressive vocabulary (and comedic timing, she
laughs just like a human, and at just the right times). She is convinced she is my mate and is referred to as "my other wife". We also have a lovebird
as a companion bird for her (but no pic). "Mew" the cat is sharing the back of the chair. She knows better than to try and mess with Suzy.
Finally, there are the bunnies, "Stephan" and "Elena" (named from Vampire Diaries). Held by my wife. They are bigger now. This was when we just got
Next season, we'll add Chickens to the mix (and sometime this summer, some Koi fish in a pond in the front). Craziness. My wife wants another horse
(as four humans in the house now, so wants one horse for each)...but I'm trying to hold that off as long as I can,
