Worked with animal (didn’t own)
Posted Feb 27, 2015
Especially on a dude ranch like where I worked with Christopher, but he lived a pretty comfortable life in a petting zoo type setting. A bit skittish towards new people, but never violent, he warmed up easily and became affectionate - he loved to brush up against the fence and really get into getting some scratches!
Colder climates didn't do so well by him, though, and we switched housing for him in the winter months as he got sick at one point. Heat seemed to do his body good, as we are located in Arizona and he had a wonderful time prancing around in the sun.
