Outing to Thanksgiving Point (lots, and lots of pictures)

I suppose I should begin by saying Happy Mothers Day to all the mommies out there, whether your kids be the two or the four legged variety. :D

Anyway, yesterday I met Forte (Fullertons brother) and his raiser at Thanksgiving point to look at all the farm animals there. It was so fun to see Forte and his raiser again. The boys are so much alike it is scary, they also look quite a bit alike too, although, Forte is a bit taller and more filled out and has a blockier head than Fullerton does. :D It was a very fun outing and the boys did great around all the animals. The animals also did great around the dogs too, I was surprised how well socialized all of them were. . . except this demon goat I swear was going to ram the fence, he kept his eyes on Fuller and Forte the whole time we were walking around the pen.

Here are the sheep. They also had some adorable baby goats in there that had to have been very recently born. They were fun to watch because they were so uncoordinated and would flop around every once in a while. Fullerton is on the left and Forte is on the right.

This is Fuller checking out the goats.

Here is Fuller with weird creature with four horns. :D

Fuller and Forte both checked out this plastic sheep. This is Fuller and I think he was a little confused.


Here is Fuller with a HUGE draft horse. He was gorgeous! Fuller and Forte really liked this horse so I got a bunch of pictures. I was surprised how well they did, no fear at all. They just thought he was one humongous dog.

Fullerton and the horse again. Forte was pretty cute meeting the horse, he would hop up on his hind legs for a better view.

The horse finally went down to their level for a better look. Fuller is on the left and Forte is on the right.

Fullerton and the geese.

We were also able to take a ride on a horse drawn carriage. Fullerton didn't seem to mind the ride at all. Both boys did fantastic. :D

Fullerton again.

After that we went and saw a donkey. Fullerton LOVED the donkey and tried to crawl into the pen. He got almost half of himself in before I pulled him back. I was afraid I was gonna loose him. lol

There were also four cows, well three cows and a calf. Fullerton was afraid of one of the cows because it kept snorting and trying to lick him, but he was great around the other three. Here he is checking out the calf.

Here is Fuller with one of the cows.

This is Forte with the licking cow that Fullerton didn't want to get near.

Here is Fuller with Millie the cow. He loved her goopy nose, I thought it was kinda icky.

Then we went over to this pen that had about 10 little ponies in it and let the boys say hello to them. A couple of the ponies tried to chomp our pups noses off so we avoided those ones, we really prefer our puppies connected to their noses. This one was really nice though.

We left the animal farm and walked over to where they grow all these flowers. How could we resist getting some pictures of the boys. Although it proved to be harder than in looks. :D
The boys finally gave up so we called it a day.
We parted ways and me and my sister headed to Costa Vida for dinner.
Then we decided to see the new Wolverine movie (which was excellent!!!!)
So, after a VERY long and exciting day the pup was so tired, so we headed to bed.

It was a very fun day and the boys did fantastic!! I am so proud of my boy!

You could practically do your calendar with these pictures! They're wonderful. My favorite is Fullerton meeting the draft horse (first picture of the horse).

What a fun outing! I wish we had something like that around here! I would take Eola to the local zoo but they are very anti-dog and I don't want to fight with them since I worked there! /grin/ Good post! Also, just noticed how CLOSE Sherman's graduation is! You have all your flights booked and you all ready to go?
