horses and llamas and peacocks, oh my!

by now you probably all know a little something about my love for all the creatures of this good earth. i am, hands down, an "animal person" and i'm not ashamed to say it. so when a colleague told me about the gentle barn, i kinda had to go.

the gentle barn is a non-profit farm animal sanctuary in santa clarita, california. they rescue abused animals and provide them with a forever home on their beautiful farm. and they have "open hours" on sundays, where visitors can come and pet the more socialized of the bunch!

Glorious creatures, the whole lot! I read about the Gentle Barn in the NYT a little while ago, and it sounds absolutely amazing.
