Murray and Mariana
Don't they make a great couple?
As you know, I love, love, love animals, so when I learned that they had a small petting zoo, I was more excited than the three year olds. The baby goats were great fun, the cow kind of boring, the big horned sheep precious. Next up, I visited the miniature horse.
I was gently petting this seemingly sweet guy when he started to nibble on my arm. He got a bit agressive, so I turned around and attempted to walk away. The darn creature put his hooves on the top of the fence and attacked. I swear he was trying to eat me. He bit me so hard that my skin was punctured.
Despite the fact that I can't sleep on my right side and my back is a swollen rainbow of colors, I find the whole incident pretty hilarious. Really, who gets attacked by a petting zoo pony? Clearly, I do.
This is what I felt like doing after the bite:
Whinny. Giddy up. Let the horse jokes begin.
