Goat or a Donkey.

Brayson87 said...

I would create a sanctuary for all the endangered animals being hunted down for ingredients in traditional chinese medicine.

E said...

A goat. I'd never have to mow the lawn or weed ever again.

And one of those tiny jumping goats to keep the other one company

sandybrook said...

I dont want things shitting all over the rugs

IndieRaga said...

Hey....same pinch!

IndieRaga said...

Then don't keep any rugs Sandy!

sandybrook said...

I dont want to clean shit off any type of floor

Do Tell said...

My dream is to have a huge rabbit rescue with a full time medical staff and just spend my days around bunnies, all day long.

Minnie The Moocher said...

Goats and donkeys.

duckling

IndieRaga said...

Try Flemish rabbits....they are AMAZING!

Dane said...

I have had horses, pigs, cows and goats. I can’t handle large animals anymore. If I could I would have some bison. My cats and dogs sound like a herd of bison running down the steps, so I guess I have to settle for that.

Alpaca

Freckles said...

Mini pigs! I have had horses, cows, sheep etc

Chippy Hick said...

I rescued 3 battery chickens. They are awesome and so funny and we get eggs every day. I'd love goats and dobkeys too but as a startup I can't reccommend ex battery chickens enough :)

Chippy Hick said...

Donkeys not dobkeys...doh!

PurplePuffin said...

Miniature horses or alpacas

Zebra Seasoning said...

I've always wanted a horse, but now I want a horse and a stable boy.

DavidHowesCREBroker said...

We almost bought a Horse Property.
But, then decided, we didn't want to do that much up-keeping work.

gauloise said...

I'd love to have peacocks

I second the alpaca thought. My exes family raises them and some are worth $1 million each!

I own an Angora Rabbit and he is the sweetest little thing. Unfortunately not good for living in a studio apartment in the city so when I move out, I want to get a few more and maybe a pygmy goat too. With pajamas...of course.

Do Tell said...

Indie, yes! I belong to a rabbit group on Facebook and people rave about the larger breeds of rabbits all the time, that they are extremely friendly and playful. There is one woman who trained her two Flemmies as therapy rabbits. She also had a baby not too long ago and these two bunnies immediately decided that they were going to be in charge of the baby, lol. She posts photos all the time of the bunnies guarding or grooming the baby. It's astonishing!

chickens

bowler_chick said...

Whatever happened to the hilarious news anchor commentator?

Huckleberry said...

Horses. They are majestic.

IndieRaga said...

I had a cuddle nap with a Flemish Rabbit once.....best nap of my adult life!!!
Definitely try once in a lifetime!

If I had help, all of them!

A friend's son has an organic farm, including eggs. The tales about the personalities on the chickens are amazing.

On the more practical front, I've always loved those Flemish rabbits, and you all are tempting me further!

I defy anyone to not be in a better mood after watching baby goats hopping around in pajamas!

Trapped said...

None grew up on a large estate we had every farm animal
Chicken, hogs, cows, ducks and horses etc don’t ever want to do that again.
It was great growing up but I don’t want to do again unless I need to..

PhillyWilly said...

Bless all you animal lovers!!

IndieRaga said...

I envy your childhood!
It's my dream to retire on a 100Acre ranch!

malapropos said...

A Meishan pig and Brahma chickens.

Simon said...

Horses

Regina said...

a pig, they are smarter than dogs! Or a lamb, they are so cute

Lo Key says stop with the censorship already! said...

Pigs. So smart.

And tasty.

Ann said...

Llamas.

Matt said...

I think maybe a shetland pony.

Unknown said...

Definitely horses ... they are my Spirit Animal. I love riding bareback, dreaming of being wild and free

Boogie Shooze said...

Pigs, goats and ducks, perhaps a donkey too.

Weekittylass said...

A pair of fainting goats.

Uhhhh... said...

10 dogs

David Andrews said...

Cows and piggies.

Gator said...

A pig. And I think Enty is referring to outside space, not animals shitting in your house.

Traitorhater said...

Well, I would take in older ones so they didn't outlive me, but I love goats, they are so smart, horses are great- I would have 2 so they would have company plus 2 pigs-but they would live out their life. 2 cows, too, just to make it complete. These cuddly rabbits sound great, but my kitties would be jealous, so I'll stop there.

Em and 'im said...

Kunekune, a small breed of pigs originally from NZ. Although originally bred for meat, they make great pets as they are intelligent with a great temperament. My husband had kunekunes as outdoor pets when he was growing up. Quite a few kunekune in the UK now.

Miss_proper said...

Turkeys, chickens, ducks and geese. Any fowl would be welcome.

Farms, ah, ranches. A few years ago I was on a car commercial on a ranch (BC). It was a dairy farm, pastoral, that the farmer decided to raise bison on after a time, as their meat goes for a higher price. Now buffalo are a wild animal, and they can be tamed, if you're the one feeding them. They're pretty chill. So here we are, a crew on a long day trip, a ferry ride too, to film buffalo running along a SUV. Buffalo Bob the rancher explains to us that more people are killed by buffalo every year than by bears or anything else, in Yellowstone. The males are huge, massive, but it's the three year old females (not a calve, and not a mom yet- like that Britney song), who defend the heard, and they're the size of elk- not small.
It's a hot day, and the Ultimate Arm camera guys practice driving their Razor 4x4 along side the herd, and they get used to the four wheeler. These are the top precision camera drivers in NA, and it's a walk in the park compared to the movies they work on. The footage from the Arri Alexa Mini is looking great, and golden hour is nearing (sun set).
So we have grips, and electrics with us. Often on road show car shoots they are just there- hard to light a car zipping down a road. Well on this one, they rig up a 3K light on a pickup, plus genny, plus a Lamp OP on the back, with a grip.
The Razor 4x4 went out and and was getting footage, in 4K, and it looked great. Then the pickup showed up.
Well apparently, unbeknownst to anyone, that if you shine a light as bright as the sun at a herd of buffalo, and tracking them in a truck, that they're going to freak out (to any DP's out there, a buffalos only reference is the sun). Only deer freeze in the headlights. The three year old heifers bison fought back. They charged, and faked off within inches (super cool on 4k). I was on the other side of the fence, and asked Buffalo Bob about the calls of the wild coming from the meadow/location shoot. "Yep, that's a sign of aggression!" The herd- the three year heifers went bat shit crazy. And their snorts and howling were wild! And the shoot was done. The guys who went out said it was the scariest shoot in the decades some of them had been in. And these are big tough dudes, and they were freaked out! These are the most unshakable people.
A day in the life in commercials.
It wasn't necessary to the commercial, and didn't pass editing.

Vita said...

HushHush-- Scary story! Thank goodness no one was trampled!

WickedBee said...

We have the room so we’ve had all types of animals, large and small.
Right now, we have the six-stall full of rabbits and chickens (our main breeding rabbit has five little 2 week olds).
The big barn has horses, a cow, goats and pigs plus the outdoor pen has rescued livestock all very old (two Clydesdale, a long horn cow, alpacas, an old ewe and more goats).
It’s quite a bit of work but it’s very fulfilling and I’ve got the routine down to just over an hour a day and hire weekend students we pay well above minimum wage.
If you’re looking for easy animals, start with rabbits. They’re my favourite!

enty-fan__hi--all said...

A horse.

Flossie_666 said...

Peacocks..... Helllp!

Me said...

Cows, chickens for poultry and eggs, pigs, turkey, and greenhouse aquaponics for veggies and fish.

Pogue Mahone said...

Not exactly a farm animal, but hippos.
