A petting zoo is a place where a lot of farm animals are together and kids can pet and feed them. You can also see how they drink water, which is different from how people drink water. Just imagine drinking from a bowl and having to stick out your tongue and lick a tiny portion every time.
The petting zoo at the Royal Agricultural Fair was so awesome from a kids’ perspective. There are goat, sheep, cows, and rabbits. Although they smell a bit, you can still have fun with them.
The administrator who was in charge of the petting zoo said that he had been there for 12 years already and
he would love to stay there longer . He told us that kids couldn’t touch the rabbits, because for most people that are allergic to animals, the first animal they are allergic to is rabbits. I wished I could have touched the rabbits, because they looked so cute.
The animals all seemed pretty selfish. Every time we fed one animal the others started to push away his or her
own type. If they can, they will swallow all the food in your hand. I guess that’s the nature of all animals?
If you are wondering if there are any good shows at the Royal Agriculture Winter Fair, you do not want to
miss the Super Dog Show (sponsored by Presidents Choice). In the dog show, we saw a few competitions where one side of the audience competed against the other side. There were dogs coming out at the first period. Then they started the competition. The dogs raced against each other. The fastest got a point for their
team. Roughly there were 7 rounds of competitions at the show. They also educated us on how to keep dogs healthy and to prevent them from being injured. They told us the right food to buy, to do an annual check with a veterinarian and to get vaccine shots as required.
Outside of the show, vendors sold various good, including frisbees, stuffed dogs, dog related games, and more!
