Farm Animals in Your Fam?

Old MacDonald had a farm – do you? Some people are lucky enough to have the space to include outdoor animals at their homes or have had those farm animals as a kid. So, excluding those furry, feathered, and finned friends that live inside, I'd love to hear either what you have or what you'd crave!

i have two horses...90% work, 10% fun but so worth it. I mean, feeding them at 6 a.m. and cleaning stalls isn't my favorite thing in the world, but i love my horses so much-I'm still young, but I see myself having horses for the rest of my life. i just dont think i will ever get over them.

my classmate raised chicks, but then his family ate them...that's so traumatizing! i'd want a horse more than chickens, though.

I think ducks are harmless if your child wants something a little different.

I hate cleaning out my kitties litter box. I don't think I would do well with cleaning up after farm animals. And I grew up on a farm(no animals)and our neighbours farms always smelled.

My mom recently got a horse so I have been hanging around a lot of horses lately and basically adopted them all. They are so cute and lovely (and bitchy) but I never realized how much WORK went into them. From brushing, picking their hooves, shoeing,shoveling tons of poop, exercising, cleaning out some very unpleasant areas (specially if its a male)etc. Its so much work and training but its total worth it when they unexpectedly nuzzle you or playfully mouth your sweater so that you will pay attention to them. Plus baby horses are the CUTEST things ever

As a kid, we had a goat, horse, chickens, and had a runaway cow for a few days until somebody claimed it. None at the same time, though. The goat was actually a pet, and the chickens were already there when we moved.

I live in Los Angeles so no farm animals here... but my boyfriend's family are sheep farmers in Wales so we get to see them sometimes.

I grew up on a farm, raised our own livestock for food. Cows, chickens, quails, rabbits, pigs. but i have no dream to recreate that in my future, i couldnt stand the noise and smells. but liked the meat.

I would love to have a few chickens. Besides the eggs, they are voracious deer tick eaters (a problem in my neck of the woods) and their droppings are good in the compost heap.

My boyfriend and I talk about having a farm when we are older all the time! This is something I've always dreamed about! I would love to have two horses, a couple chickens (for the fresh eggs) and maybe some ducks too! Plus the 1 dog and 2 cats we have already, plus the 1 more cat we want to get and 2 more dogs we want to get!!! Ahh we're crazy but we just love animals~!
