say howdy to our new barnyard critters
These days The Alisal barnyard is alive with new snorts, squeals and squawks, as we welcome in a passel of new critters just waiting to meet you. Come on by and say “howdy” to our two new miniature Zebu cattle, a big African tortoise, our giant 15-pound Flemish rabbit, a flock of new ducklings and a friendly Kuni Kuni pig, named Carter.
The barnyard is a great place to take the youngin’s. There are plenty of activities available where they can learn all about the traditional barnyard animals, as well as some exotic species, that are sure to pique their curiosity. In our reptile room we have almost a dozen interesting, safe, lizards and snakes. Of course, guest favorites, like our alpacas and baby goats will also be on hand. This summer we have added a few new activities, like building a bird feeder, a chance to paint a lucky horseshoe, and a fun and informative natural history program.
Our barnyard is being run by a long-time member of the Ranch family, Josh Messina. If you have any critter questions, Josh will be happy to answer them.
