Grant's Farm

On Friday we went to Grant's Farm in St.Louis. It was the home of General Ulysses S Grant, but the property is now owned by the Busch family. It was alot of fun to see all the animals and each adult got 2 free beers.
So here is one of the gates, don't think they really use it right now, but the fence that is connected to it is made of Civil War rifles.
So on the tram you ride around the farm and see all kinds of animals. We saw horses, donkeys, deer, elk, buffalo, ducks, geese, and different kinds of cattle. They have over 1000 animals on the farm form 6 different continents.

We got a few bottles to feed the goats, yea going inside the fence was a bad idea. They totally attack you and push each other out of the way to get to the food. We had to go outside the fence to finish cause they were attacking Wyatt and he got a little freaked out.

Wyatt and I got to ride together on the Merry Go Round.

So this is Bud the elephant. We got to watch alittle show about him and that blue bar in his mouth was part of the show, but he stole it from the girl and ate it. I guess this has happened a few times, but this time he ate the ball that was on the end of the metal stick. No he did not eat the bar but he did chewed it up. Us on the tram riding around the farm.
At the end of the farm you got to go over and meet the Budweiser horses. This colt really wanted Wyatt to pet him, he came up to him and kind of nudge his head to him, was really cute.
