Good Fence Thursday-Big Cat Habitat


These fences are found in Big Cat Habitat, not a zoo, but a rescue sanctuary for wild life that cannot be turned into the wild and for abused animals. This rescue survives by donations only.

Joining TexWisGirl for Good Fence Thursday.


These guys were not foaling around, they were digging into that hay. They must have been there awhile because they look like a stable population.

Hay, think I will bale to. That's all I got, I am dun.


The horse said to the camel, any pal of yours is a Palomino.


Seeing donkey, horse, camel, pony and zebra, all living and eating peacefully together can sure stirrup my emotions.  

Did you know A horse needs 15 pounds of hay per day..

The quote by Kant is so true!! I can see an animal...you can see his ribs and he has almost no fat or muscle. This must be the new acquisition, and he will be fattened up soon.

Yes, horses can eat a LOT!!! But, I love 'em no matter.

Really like being stirrup-ed today.

I love the quote. These are great photos and perfect for Good Fences. The puns are right on!

Rose said...

ONLY 15 lbs of hay per day...that is about like the show we watched about cats last night...A tiger only ate about 80 lbs of meat in one day!

I love hearing of animal sanctuary. But that horse. Is that ribs I'm seeing? Yikes! He better eat up! Your blog is always so colorful and fun!

Such a special place. Lots of different animals there. I like the way the horses in the first shot seemed to be "stair stepped" by height.

jandi said...

Love your equine puns- you know how to stirrup a laugh...

I ALWAYS wanted a horse of my own. Little wonder, my parents said, 'no'! Later in her life I used to enjoy 'gigging' my mother telling her, "You and daddy gave me almost everything I ever wanted ... except, I'm still waiting for that horse."

Your second picture - of the three stair-steppers is adorable! 'Looks like a pleasant little burro in the foreground.

Wow..what a wonderful place for big animals that need a place to call home!! We need to remember places like this for next year's shelter fund raiser!!

Ann said...

I can't help wondering if a horse eats 15 lbs of hay a day how many pounds of manure does he turn that in to. I know ...gross.

TexWisGirl said...

good ones. :)

SweetMarie said...

I agree with the quote. Love all the photos! Animals are a gift. :)

Lois said...

More great photos and I love seeing the camel.

Thankful for the sanctuaries for animals like these. So sad that we need them though.

Ruth Hiebert said...

I'm sure glad there are places like this so these animals can live out their lives in comfort.

Terri @ Coloring Outside the Lines said...

Lots of hay- I imagine the sanctuary needs a lot of donations to buy all that hay and probably other feed, and meds, too.

Debby@Just Breathe said...

They have a nice selection of animals there!

I am just kid my grandkids, I love a petting zoo.
