Donkey at petting ZOO
Z is for ZOO - petting ZOO, actually
Now that most Canadian kids live in urban areas or in towns and villages, farm animals are nearly as exotic to them as animals from Africa and Asia. Only kid-friendly animals usually appear at petting zoos, so children are free to actually touch them gently with their hands.
Alpaca (I think)
Adults like me find it fun to get up close too.
Goats and sheep
Even goats and sheep are "foreign" to most Canadians so are great parts of a petting zoo.
And so are ponies.

Amazing creatures, every one.
Your photos prove this is a fun place for kids.
I love them all, but must admit to thinking donkeys are the cutest thing ever! Love the way you've captured their personalities. =)
Yes these places are great for children and adults to getup close and personal. Love the donkey and I think the Alpaco has a bad hair day,
Beautiful animals and I like these little petting zoos for kids (and adults).
Spectacular second photo!!
You are so right about not seeing the farm animals that my parents took for granted... I love the hair on the alpaca!!
That alpaca's quite a standout!
I love your shots of this little petitng zoo, and so fun for the kids to have a chance to be around these animals. You are so right that most urban kids really don't get to see many of these any more.
Alpacas are always so cute and innocent looking. Love your images!

Great photos! I love petting zoos...if the animals are happy and taken care of that is. I was at one the other day and wished I could of taken the mini donkey home with me!...he was very neat!
That alpaca is colorful.
I would spend the whole time petting. i love petting zoos. i like the expression on the boys face in the first shot...
How very fun this was for us as well. Great photos from your visit!
Awwww, they are all so cute!
So cute! I love petting zoos.
so sweet. :)
Petting zoos are terrific and I love them, too! A great chance for kids/us to see animals that we don't have a chance to see living with concrete/pavement/buildings instead of nature!! Wonderful, fun captures for the day!! Thanks for sharing! Hope your week is going well!!
I live in farm country and I still love petting zoos! I'd be the one dragging my kids over to see the animals.Who can resist the patient donkey and the quirky alpacas?
Cute animal pics. Looks like the kids are having fun!
I like to visit the Zoo. Alpaca has beautiful eyes :)
Thank you for the nice visit ... see you
That alpaca looks like he just had a perm! I love petting the animals, too! Also loving the pretty blue fence!
Wonderful shots! I always enjoy petting zoos.
I like pictures of petting zoos. All of the cuteness... none of the smell. ;-)
It's nice for us adults to see 'exotic' creatures too! ;-)
Sweet collection of animals. The alpaca reminds me of James Brown.
The alpaca is great!
It's sad to think that kids nowadays don't even know what chicken look like and believe that they come in boxes... My question: what's up with the parents?
lol, I really love the "hairdo" of the alpaca :)
Adorable critter photography at the Petting Zoo for Z ~ thanks!
Happy week to you,

They are just precious (both the kids and the animals!).
I have to say that goats are always great! ;-)
What neat photos. We saw either an alpaca or llama...we weren't sure which! lol Love going to a zoo like this one! Hugs!
Perfect for the letter Z! Love the photos, especially of the donkey.
That alpaca (I think) is so unusual. I wonder how many Canadians come across them, whether they are urban or rural.
great photos and such a good opportunity for children
This alpaga is really a strange but lovely one!
So often city kids have never even seen a cow ! Beautiful pictures !
Kids and animals - my favorite combination!
I may be an adult, but I still enjoy the petting zoo!
You found a nice petting Zoo, Ms. EQTG. I like them but those kids really like them. The sheep and goats would be my favorites.
I enjoyed the trip to your petting zoo. I'm afraid a lot of kids here don't see a lot of different animals either. We drive past cattle often, but not much else.
Good experience there for the kids, it must be wonderful to pet them :)
yay for petting zoos and those wonderful docile animals! great captures, all!
