The Porch

Texas Safari Ranch
Guests are given buckets of feed for the animals. The red deer came up on our porch and looked in the windows to remind us they were waiting to be fed. Not the best photo, but it was cool to see the deer on the porch.

Texas Safari Ranch is home to both endangered species and species that are extinct in the wild. Their goal is to help to ensure these species recover and will be around for future generations.

Animal friendship is always the most honest. It is based on human care for the animal

This made me smile. It reminds me of when I use to take care of my grandson. In the winter the deer would come to the sliding glass doors peeking in, hoping for food!

That is so cool...and funny, too. Do you pet them? I did not know if that is allowed or not.

They behave just like Portia at her dinner time. She reminds us it's time to eat.

Last year I drove to Ocean Shores and saw 4 big bucks waiting by a guys back porch. The guy came out with 2 black berry pies, saw me and yelled, these are my pets. He sat the 2 pies on the porch and went inside and got 2 more. He then said, OK boys come and get it. They each got their own pie and behaved like they had done this routine many times.
