Today was another zoo day. I wound up cleaning out the giraffe barn which is a lot more fun in practice than it sounds on here, I guarantee. Giraffes are very cool animals and I was entertained by the one that kept leaning around to look at what I was doing (from the outside of the barn– I was on the inside with the doors closed so as not to have any surprises from them).
There is something very satisfying about starting with a dirty barn and going through the whole cleaning process until it’s nice again and smells vaguely of soap and then putting out the fresh food. They eat horse grain, by the way (among other things), so it’s very much like caring for really big horses. Except they aren’t.
